Science Writing - Master's Degree


In 2013, the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences merged the Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies with the Comparative Media Studies program, creating the Comparative Media Studies/Writing section. This merger therefore also brought two master's programs -- one in comparative media studies, the other in science writing -- under the same roof.

Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies theses can be found here.
