Graduate students in the Creative Studies' graduate program are engaged in some very interesting research and scholarship. For many years, we have included annotations of their work in the Creative Studies Library located in the E. H. Butler Library. However, this may prove a limiting factor for our students in the distance education program and local, national, and international researchers. These are executive summaries, or non-technical articles, of selected Creative Studies graduate students' masters theses or projects. These are written by students in our educational program intended to provide accurate, readable research information to professionals and other interested persons. The materials listed here are copyright protected and are made available for personal or educational use only. For all other uses, please contact the copyright owner.
