Thesis Project

This course assists students in the necessary research methods leading to the creation of a thesis that traces the development of their work within the historical, theoretical, cultural, & aesthetic context in which it has evolved. Students work closely with an acclaimed art critic to develop a narrative context for their thesis exhibition & are engaged in a discussion about other artists work & ideas, as well as writing by artists & scholars. The MFA thesis committee, chosen by the student, is responsible for supervising the student’s progress toward the exhibition, written thesis, & thesis defense.
