In this senior level course, students will further develop the investigations of the first semester towards an articulated body of work built around the student’s interest and curiosity. Emphasis is placed on the students’ ability to contextualize their work within larger historical, cultural, social, and technological frameworks and translate their cumulative knowledge into effective visual communication. This course is taught through a multi-faceted, in-depth design thesis, which is supported by review sessions with peers and external critics, as well as a design lecture series. Thesis is initiated by research topics and not by media or technology, and students will be challenged to consider context and audience. The focus is on concept development, cross-media making, and critical thinking. Students will present their thesis to a panel of external design professionals and, in the process, demonstrate effective visual, verbal, and written presentation of work. Senior Thesis 2 culminates in an end-of-year online and printed presentation. Open to: Bachelors degree in Communication Design majors, seniors only. Pre-requisite(s): PUCD 4205 Core 4: Thesis 1
