In this course, students will pursue in-depth research and study within a studio concentration that culminates in the public presentation of the BFA Thesis Exhibition in the Spring. In this first semester of this year-long course, students determine and define their individual thesis investigations. This semester is also the time that students create a design direction as they begin production of materials that showcase their solutions to the probelms they investigate. At the end of the semester, students will be required to prepare and present their thesis, problem and proposed solution for critical review to their Faculty Committee. The committee will determine if the students proceed to the next semester, or re-present in the first few weeks of the Spring semester.
To provide the student with specific working format and guidance during planning and preparation of the BFA thesis investigation and research.
