Urban Ecologies Thesis

Taught By: Miguel Robles-Duran

Section: A

CRN: 2871

This course prepares students to develop and implement their thesis project. Students continue working on the research and design proposals initiated in DUE Studio 3 and submit their research and practice-led proposition. Students are encouraged to work collaboratively, establish external and internal partnerships and hold group discussions as they continue with their research and develop realistic strategies for urban interventions involving local communities and institutions. In addition, students are required to design ways of testing and implementing the intervention strategies. With committee approval, students may submit thesis projects in alternative forms, such as documentary video, multimedia, social or art practice, but must be situated within the transdisciplinary discursive space established during the first three semesters.
