Course No. PHV 495M Credits: 3.0
Faculty Nancy McEntee
This course will provide a framework for developing a conceptual photographic philosophy and written BFA Thesis. Students develop a thesis proposal and written Thesis in conjunction with work they will present in their BFA exhibition and final portfolio. Students hone critical and theoretical skills in photography by examining historical and contemporary practices that have emerged with respect toward concepts and processes. Students investigate these ideas through critical readings, discussions, writing, and field trips. Portfolio, exhibition, professional presentation, and writing skills are fine-tuned in this semester of study. The course format maximizes the potential for dynamic group interaction and facilitates essential one-on-one exchange with faculty and individual students. 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. Projects include a Thesis exhibition proposal, written Thesis, and calendar dates for all phases of work to be completed. Individual projects working towards their BFA exhibition are contracted with each student. Required of Senior Photography majors. Offered fall.
