In the fourth semester of study, students are guided in the production of visual and written thesis work, in varied forms and contexts as described below.
Design Thesis Exhibition Students present their work installed in the Mason Gross Galleries.
Students formulate an argument/idea about their Thesis Project. They describe, analyze, and synthesize this argument in the form of an illustrated and captioned five-page essay.
Thesis Panel Presentation Students deliver a verbal and visual presentation of the Thesis Project, continuing to formalize their ideas after completing the thesis exhibition.
Students carry the work forward to a new audience or wider public. The format for this work is open; possibilities include a website, article, book, exhibition, or public display. Students are supported to seek out and apply for grants and other opportunities to distribute, publish, exhibit, or otherwise extend this work.
