dc.description.abstract In this thesis, I detail the methods I have used to reduce and analyze the data I have collected on two eclipsing binary systems from the Northern Sky Variability Survey: NSVS 7322420 and NSVS 5726288. These systems have not had any follow-up studies performed on them other than classification as potential eclipsing binary systems. I present the data that I have collected as well as the results of my analysis of the data. My analysis indicates that both systems are β Lyrae type eclipsing binaries. en_US
