In this course, the second in the Core Studio Thesis experience, students complete a body of work and a thesis in their area of interest. A thesis defense takes place during oral reviews at which students present their research, thesis concept, exhibition proposal, and still photographs, motion, performance, installation, and other genres to a panel comprised of faculty experts. Students are expected to articulate the link between their writing and creative practice as they position their work in historical and contemporary contexts. A thesis exhibition and portfolio review with industry leaders complete the semester.
