Grad Students 2014

Tasman Island

Each year, the Master of Arts in Island Studies (MAIS) students, as part of the requirements for IST 604: Research Methods and Design for Island Studies, are tasked with writing and presenting their thesis research proposals.

Here are this year’s presentations, created by seven MAIS students, and presented to an appreciative audience on Thursday, November 20, 2014.

We hope you enjoy the work, and, in the process, become as fascinated as we are about Island Studies!
