Senior Thesis 1 and Senior Thesis 2 are a year-long, self-driven design exploration into an identified question, critique, or point of view, as well as an investigation into the design process itself. Students will be asked to reflect on how their ideas—as expressed through design—sits alongside historical precedent and shapes culture in the present. It provides an opportunity for visual innovation through the development of a rigorous design process. By moving through research, ideation, prototyping, iteration, and presentation, students will begin to develop a capstone thesis by way of exploration across multiple media. Senior Thesis 1 focuses on process. The goal of the first semester is to develop a thesis concept and create initial prototypes. This includes articulation of research, which contextualizes how one’s work posits itself within larger historical, cultural, social, and technological frameworks.
