This capstone course for graduating seniors prompts students to think reflectively about their purpose, practice, and engagement as an artist in society. In both looking back at the evidence of their work at The New School as well as looking forward towards plans for professional projects beyond graduation, students will build and refine a portfolio that documents their work and facilitates connections to larger public communities. In addition to incorporating performance elements students will develop statements of purpose and inquiry based research projects in the development of their portfolios, which will be constructed in The New School electronic learning portfolio platform. This course is also a space where students will plan and discuss concepts for their Senior Recital presentations both in a collaborative cohort based forum as well as in meetings with faculty mentors facilitated by the instructor. Written and programmatic elements of recital planning will be included as part of the course syllabus and featured in student portfolios. Students will be connected to career preparation resources offered through the Center for Student Success while working individually and in groups to articulate intellectual and creative paths to future career and opportunities in music performance. The Senior Seminar aims to foster dialogue and collaboration within the graduating class cohort, support seniors in developing presentations of their work through portfolios and recitals, and forge meaningful connections to professional engagement beyond their undergraduate study.
