These records were donated to the Washington State University Libraries by Tami Vik of the Washington State University Murrow College of Communications on July 1st, 2010 (UA2010-06). Processing of this collection was completed by University Archivist Mark O'English in November of 2010, with University of Idaho graduate student Timothy Mace.

Washington State University's Department of Communications was formed in 1964 by the merging of the Journalism Department and the broadcasting courses offered by the Speech Department. In 1990 it became the Murrow School of Communications, and in 2008 it was renamed as the Edward R. Murrow College of Communications.


The collection consists of individual Masters Projects conducted by students in WSU's Communications program. The projects in this collection had been compiled and stored by the graduate program in Communications, and are far from a comprehensive set. Masters theses are not here; those can be found within the WSU Libraries' book collections.

The collection is organized in one series, alphabetically by authors.


This collection is open and available for research use. Copyright restrictions may apply.
