1844 the country was recognized as a nation and the name change again to Santo Domingo. Which is consider the jewel of the Caribbean. The French occupied western side of the island, which was very profitable. In 1795 the entire island was sold to the French by the Spain. In 1804 a slaves uprising cause the French lose portions of the western island which is now called Haiti. The French solders fought until they were able to gain parts of the west end of the island back. In 1838 a group of Spanish Dominican from Santo Domingo put together a secret organization called La Trinitaria. There job was to over throw the Haitian rule. This society was established by Juan Pablo Duarte, from Dominican Republic. After the coup, Trujillo became the first president of the Dominican Republic. Dominican Republic was first in the Caribbean islands, to have won its independence before slavery was abolished. The Dominicans consider themselves more Latin American than Caribbean.











Thesis Disciplines:

This is a sample, I need the courses listed at the bottom of the page to flow in this manner.

(Sample)

At the core level, the focal point will be in the interdisciplinary field of American studies which incorporates the disciplines of modern, economic and cultural history as well as literature, art and media studies. This is closely related to another valuable perspective viewing the issue from the disciplines of cultural anthropology and social anthropology; the scientific studies of cultural development and the roles, groups, institutions and relationships within a society. Additionally, the discipline of political science, mainly the branch of international relations will be incorporated as the essential question within the thesis deals with the effect of Americans, living, working, and traveling abroad, on foreign affairs and global issues.





Thesis Description:

I was trying to write off the thesis question and make look a little like this sample.

Sample

Since my earliest studies, I have been interested in international relations and the cultural development of society. When I was afforded the opportunities to travel extensively to diverse, foreign countries with the U.S. military and diplomatic services, I was able to observe and experience the effects that ordinary Americans had on the local population s impression of American society and policy. The acceptance or rejection of a particular policy, in some cases, could be ascribed to the population s beliefs about America which would be based on personal encounters with Americans as well as local press reports. Living in different countries, I found that many people form an opinion about America with information from literature, media, and film and then confirm or deny those opinions when meeting Americans.



Hollywood is a powerful, influential institution that has created stereotypical images of Americans such as John Wayne and Tom Cruise and has propagated an opinion about America which covers the globe. Foreign citizens use these images in conjunction with current events to form their own opinions about America and American foreign policies. Based on their opinions, people may accept or reject a particular policy. Often, this acceptance or rejection can influence the success or failure or a multi-million dollar program. It is particularly important that the influence of ordinary citizens is recognized and studied so that it can be quantified and promoted or mitigated as needed.

My circumstances of living and working in Europe, Asia, and Africa on varying programs with different government organizations offers unique insight into grass-roots acceptance or rejection of American policy. I would like to use my experiences to benefit society by tailoring a thesis project that will compliment on-going or completed studies which mainly focus on the macro-political level of America s global role.

I expect that the detailed, scientific study of a subject that interests me will broaden my own personal horizons, but more importantly, will allow me to combine my acquired knowledge with the information from others that will result in a more complete synergetic product. I hope that it will be something that is useful to others in trying to understand the ever-changing, complex world of international relations on an individual level.
