"I love all the detailed constructive feedback I get on my MA paper at each stage of the process. The comments are always helpful, and they enable me to constantly improve the quality of my research and writing. It's so wonderful (and rare!) that professors and TAs take the time to give such in-depth individual feedback. I feel really well-supported throughout the research process. The ICE faculty and TAs are fully invested in making our MA papers as strong as possible."
- Catherine Julia Winn Galloway, ICE '16
“The MA paper was a particularly effective capstone that I used to merge my field experience, newly acquired theoretical knowledge, and research skills. I did not merely learn for the sake of individual classes; my knowledge came together through this project.”
- Lilach Shafir, IEPA ‘11
“The MA Paper is now a strong component of my résumé and has given me the opportunity of discuss my findings and ideas with Mexican public officials of the Secretariat of Public Education and the National Institute for Educational Research.”
- Marcela Silveyra, IEPA ‘13
“The MA paper allowed me to explore an area of interest in-depth and with expertise. The process of research is one that was challenging and rewarding at the same time; I gained confidence from my ability to craft my skills in a complex and multi-layered process. Going from a raw idea to a completed master's paper in such a short time is an achievement that I will always pride myself on, and will carry with my throughout my professional career.”
