To find specific titles or authors, use our Master's Projects and Theses Index. Unfortunately, there is currently no subject access or keyword search for this collection. The print MS projects and MA theses cannot be checked out, but they can be read in the library. The most recent five years of broadcast Master's projects and theses are available for loan from the Journalism Library Reserves Collection and circulate for 2 days. Projects from earlier years may be requested at the Lehman Library Reserves Desk. To request a radio or television project, you must know the author's name and their year of graduation, available through the index.


Let us know if you have any questions about using the collection, and best of luck with your own projects!
