The Formation of Knowledge MAPSS concentration requires students to take 1 core seminar (SIFK-MAPSS) and two additional seminars and to work closely with at least one faculty supervisor at or affiliated with the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge who will oversee and approve a MA thesis. 

In addition to the core and two elective seminars, MAPSS students will be required to produce an MA thesis (30–40 pages in length) that explores a foundational question in the formation of knowledge. The Formation of Knowledge concentration challenges students to creatively employ the tools they have acquired in their core MAPSS Perspectives on Social Science course as well as the core and elective seminars they have taken at SIFK, in order to refine and reshape the intellectual framework of their research questions and theses.
