Attention: Prospective CMS graduate students

Tired of just reading about the exciting adventures we have out here in CMS-Land. If you can draw those pictures on the back of matchbooks, you should go to cartooning school. If you can analyze media, you should come to Comparative Media Studies. But seriously -- a high percentage of this year's crop of entering students discovered our program through this blog. So, I figure there must be some folks out there thinking about applying. If you'd like to know more about our program, here's some details about our forthcoming information sessions for prospective students:

The Comparative Media Studies Masters Program In-House information sessions are held periodically throughout the term in room 14N-417 at MIT (unless otherwise noted below). This is an opportunity to sit down with our directors, Henry Jenkins and William Uricchio, and ask any questions that you may have about the masters program here.

Please RSVP if interested in attending. Email Generoso Fierro (generoso AT mit DOT edu) with any questions.
