The The­sis Stu­dio cen­ters around pro­duc­tion of the MFA the­sis. The MFA the­sis is the largest and final degree require­ment for MFA can­di­dates. The the­sis work embod­ies the process, sig­nif­i­cance, and results of a prac­tice-based cre­ative inquiry com­pleted dur­ing the sec­ond year of study. It must make some orig­i­nal con­tri­bu­tion to knowl­edge in the field of con­tem­po­rary art prac­tice. In the The­sis Stu­dio stu­dents pre­pare for their MFA The­sis Exhi­bi­tion, the Writ­ten The­sis and their Oral The­sis Pre­sen­ta­tion. The MFA The­sis Exhi­bi­tion forms the nucleus of the the­sis work. The Writ­ten The­sis is a sup­port­ing doc­u­ment that clearly artic­u­lates the back­ground, objec­tives, out­comes, process, and sig­nif­i­cance of the the­sis work. The Oral The­sis Pre­sen­ta­tion is a live pre­sen­ta­tion to fac­ulty and peers that sum­ma­rizes the the­sis project as a whole. A Fac­ulty com­mit­tee of advi­sors directs this inde­pen­dent research.
