Research + Insights

This seminar introduces students to local, regional and global environmental - social - economic issues and stakeholders, to help students present their work in a professional manner, to articulate the issues their work is intended to address, and to formulate a basis of evaluation of their work and the work of others. The course will specifically explore issues and stakeholders relevant to students’ individual practices, potential projects and portfolios. The seminar will meet weekly to critique, in rotation, the work-in-progress of all candidates and studio lab teams. The seminar will include visiting artists and scholars, critiques with academic and industry experts, and off-campus trips to regional community stakeholders. During each graduate seminar students will work on the development of their thesis project.
