The object of this thesis is to investigate the predictions of the MIT bag model for hadronic scattering. Chapter one provides an introduction to the model, describes the results of the MIT group and presents the zeroth order classical scattering solution of Wu et Al. In chapter two we show how to relate this to experiment and explain why the model needs a quantum treatment and the inclusion of quark-quark interactions to make it realistic. In chapter three we try to improve the naive quantum-mechanical model of chapter two. In chapter four we consider explicit models for the quark-quark interaction and in chapter five we show how these effects may help the bag model to predict the correct form of the nucleon-nucleon interaction. In chapter six we consider a modified bag model without sharp boundaries and attempt to discover the scattering properties of this model. Chapter seven consists of a summary and conclusion.
