Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies
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.
Science Writing - Master's Degree theses in Comparative Media Studies/Writing can be found here.
