Teaching

Thesis I

The thesis project consists of documented research and a body of creative work. The project should reflect individual direction and interests, attained through an awareness of the creative use of the computer and emerging technologies and its potential in the chosen area of practice. This course is intended to guide students through the initial stages of their thesis. A forum for discussion of content and context, as well as critique of work-in-progress with faculty and visiting artists will be provided. Throughout the year, students will work with a thesis group leader and the department chair.

Thesis II

A continuation of Thesis I, this course is geared to achieving the goals outlined in thesis proposals. Weekly group and individual critiques will be held.

Thesis Continuation

This course will guide students who are in the final stages of thesis production through the completion of their thesis by providing a forum for discussion and critique of work-in-progress.  Prerequisite: Thesis II
