Thesis Writing

Spring 2020

Taught By: Linyee Yuan

Section: A

CRN: 3174

Credits: 3

This course supports Design Studio 4 and builds upon Thesis Preparation. Students learn to articulate their hypothesis and supporting arguments, while testing it against evidence from their own design-led inquiry and others' research. The paper will focus on students' own primary source material, as well as secondary sources and precedence. Beyond the thesis paper, the course also acts as a repository for collecting students’ full body of work around their selected project. Students will combine their thesis essay, final project, and supporting body of work into a compelling media document, such as a digital book.

Open to MFA Industrial Design majors only. Co-requisite: PGIN 5201 Design Studio 4.

College: Parsons School of Design (PS)
