The thesis prep semester is the first semester of a two-semester thesis project. Although students will begin with research, analysis, and design ideas in the Fall and then follow with a studio project in the self-directed Spring, the process of developing a thesis project is non-linear. Each of these aspects - research, analysis and design - continue in parallel throughout the entire year. Students will work closely with the thesis faculty during the Fall semester to develop their critical thinking and to identify an appropriate program and site (if applicable) for each individual area of interest. In addition to two illustrated presentations, you will also have a series of workshop classes in which you and a small group of your peers will have the opportunity to present your written and graphic work to two faculty members. The goal of these workshops is to allow for a longer, more informal and more intensive discussion of your project and its development with both faculty and fellow students.
