Thesis Project Overview

To complete the Certificate in Media and Politics you can elect to write a 25-30 page research thesis instead of creating a portfolio. You should choose a topic related to media and politics and it is possible to work on an assignment from a course you have already completed. Nevertheless, you will need to develop it and broaden its scope. A faculty member will mentor you and supervise your project.

The Media and Politics faculty will assess and give the final approval for your completed thesis. You will also need to present your thesis during the spring semester.
