Admissions Courses

Biomedical Art: BFA Thesis

Course No. BMA406  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Thomas Nowacki

This course is designed to act as a summative experience for the student. The final BFA Thesis Project will be a collaborative-project based learning system with requirements to solve and effectively communicate a medical or scientific problem. Integration of outside resources, effective client communication, professional practices, presentation and documentation of the process will be expected. The spring section of the course will serve as the means to complete the production and exhibition portion of the BFA project. The expectation will be a fully realized and completed BFA Project with the necessary supporting documentation, research paper, artist statement, project statement and any specific media (print or digital) that is needed for exhibition and installation. The choice of media will be evaluated on its appropriateness for communicating the message and solving the problem. The project visualization will be student driven; content needs will be determined by the student and the research. The emphasis in this course will be on the conceptual development and its realization through a design process which fully addresses the restraints of client collaboration, audience, time and budgetary considerations. Offered spring.
