FINA 783 Thesis Preparation Studio I

3 credits 75.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Following the successful completion of Summer II and the MFA Candidacy Review, the student is declared a thesis candidate by the graduate faculty. They begin independently producing a body of work intended for eventual presentation in a thesis exhibition following the successful completion of Summer III. In consultation with their studio mentor, the student submits Thesis Preparation Plan I, identifying and describing a direction of investigation to be undertaken during the fall semester. The student is expected to identify specific issues to be addressed: intended focus of the work, considerations of technique, materials, scale, location, etc. The student must propose a personal timetable for accomplishing the thesis and identify the sources that will be used in preparation for the exhibition. Enrollment in Thesis Preparation I requires a commitment of 150 hours, equivalent to 10 hours of studio activity per week during the 15-week, off-campus semester.
