This website hosts my master’s thesis, Argument quality in Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting, which I wrote in 2011 as a student at the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Read the abstract

There are two ways to access the thesis.

The first way is to download a PDF copy of the thesis as submitted to the graduate school. Unfortunately, the formatting required by Missouri is ugly. I might create a prettier downloadable copy of the thesis.

The second way is to read the thesis online using the links below. The online version of the thesis contains a few very minor typographical and grammar corrections from the official version (it also uses endnotes, not footnotes) but should be otherwise identical. In any cases where the two versions disagree, the PDF is the “official” one.

If you have comments or questions, then you can post them in the comments section of any page, send me an email or say something on Twitter.
