Hello All!

This is the summary on schools offering distance TW master's programmes.
Unfortunately, I have neither had the time to verify all addresses/information nor have
I received replies to all my inquiries to the universities. Therefore, I can not
guarantee the accuracy of this summary. However, (oops, just had a bit of an earthquake)
if anyone has any further questions regarding this posting only, please feel free to
contact me.

As suggested by the Posting Rules, I have included attributions of the Techwr-L members
whose response to my initial query is included in this summary.

For those of you who are looking for the same information as I am, I hope this summary
is of some help to you!

Again, thank you very much to everyone who kindly replied to my original posting.
