Thesis is a required studio wherein students develop their thesis research and design interests toward a thorough and complete spatial project. Thesis is completed in two components: a three-credit-hour seminar in the fall term and a six-credit-hour thesis studio in the winter term. Thesis is an independent study opportunity for those students who are sufficiently mature and self-motivated to benefit from self-directed creative work. Students deploy design thinking and investigative skills, cultural diversity exploration and research applications. The thesis interest, statement of intent and research is developed, reviewed and approved by faculty thesis review committee in the spring seminar.

Public open hours: Friday, April 27 – Sunday, April 29, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
