Course No. PHV 496M  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Nancy McEntee

Students enrolled in this course build a cohesive portfolio of work to be presented professionally, at their Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition and complete their written Thesis. Students refine conceptual and technical aspects of their own and assignment-based work. Individual BFA Thesis projects are contracted with each student along with calendar dates for all phases of work to be completed. The course format maximizes the potential for dynamic group interaction and facilitates essential one-on-one exchange with faculty and individual students. Within critique and classroom discussion, relevant contemporary, historical, theoretical, and artistic practices are discussed. Faculty provides a balance of assignments, lectures, critiques, visiting artist lectures, workshops and demonstrations as needed. Professional practices and development of an artist exhibition are covered as part of this course. Senior Photo majors are presented with many opportunities to present work to gain the confidence and skills necessary to communicate to a broad range of audiences. Senior Photo Majors are expected to participate in local, regional and national exhibitions. Graduating students are also required to conduct regular meetings with members of their BFA Advisory Committee throughout the semester. Required of Senior Photography majors. Offered spring.
