BFA Research + Thesis
Course No. CMC 400 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Matthew Hollern
Core 5 is a hybrid seminar/studio courses for seniors with a focus on investigation, growth and verbal intelligibility. Each student develops their own criteria for a thesis and portfolio of work through research, exploration, and experimentation in various materials and media. The seminar includes discussions, presentations, readings, and writing assignments which vary to recognize the direction of the group and formal issues and conceptual challenges. The subject, research, and writing for the thesis are developed during the first semester with the final thesis due before the BFA exhibition and critique. The course includes field trips to museums, galleries, and artist studio visits to expose students to historical and contemporary artwork and practice. The mid-year review at the end of the fall semester is an Environment- wide presentation and progress review, which also prepares students for the oral defense of the BFA exhibition in the spring. Required of all graduating Craft + Material Culture majors. Offered fall. Open to electives.
