Graduate Course
Majors Only
Thesis Writing
Spring 2023
Taught By: Julie Lasky
Section: A

CRN: 7015

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.
