international diploma in Humanitarian Leadership (IDHL)
MA Thesis Research I and II
2 credits each
Students should develop a thesis topic with a Fordham faculty advisor and a reader who has significant practical experience in humanitarian affairs, ideally during the IDOHA module. This project is the culminating demonstration of the knowledge and skill gained throughout the MIHA coursework. The thesis will focus on practical examples of past mistakes, contributing possible solutions to the existing literature. The research methods necessary to writing the thesis are taught within the context of each module. Thesis projects should incorporate learning from previous IDHL courses, followed by final editing, defense and approval.
This course is required for the IDHL module of the MIHA. If interested in pursuing the MIHA, please apply here.
