Critical Knowledge as Transformative Practice. Students are required to take this seminar in the second year to prepare for completion of their final thesis. The seminar is designed to help students define and structure the thesis project and to introduce them to a variety of research methodologies that are utilized in professional practice as well as academic scholarship. Students develop a thesis outline by completing a series of short exercises.
