MFA Thesis 1

Course ID: LA625
Course Credits: 2
Pre-Requisite: LA620
Requirement: R
Course Description:
This specialized course is designed to develop the MFA Thesis: a substantial summative statement analyzing and explaining the student's final studio work in the MFA program. More than a mere artist statement, the writing is to be a formal academic analysis (of approximately 8,000 words), which will be submitted at the end of the final semester of study to stand in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree Master of Fine Arts. This MFA Thesis will describe the studio project fully, integrate the student's understanding of historical and contemporary issues with themes that the student is exploring in her or his studio practice, explain the research and methodology behind the creation of the art itself, describe any self-imposed limitations, and present a sufficiently developed justification of the artwork.
