Current Research Projects

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Research within the Graduate Program in Communication & Culture is determined by the proposed projects presented by successful aspirants. Our students complete a thesis and/or dissertation, which then becomes published as "Electronic Theses & Dissertations" and sits as a public document within our institutional repository - YorkSpace.
