Jewelry + Metals Thesis

Course No. MET 093B  Credits: 1.5
Faculty Kathy Buszkiewicz | Matthew Hollern

The thesis book project was established in the Jewelry and Metals department and has been required course work since 1965. The development of the thesis book allows each major to write about a range of experiences from their work, and document the development of a body of work in text, photos, and renderings. Each thesis becomes part of an important collection that dates back to the earliest BFA degrees. Essay subjects are presented to challenge students to conduct research and examine their own position. Discussions and presentations vary to recognize the direction of the group. The course culminates in creating two copies of the book - one that stays within the department as an archival object and teaching tool and the other acts as a professional portfolio upon graduation for the individual student. The second half of a two-semester course. Open to graduating Jewelry and Metals majors and all electives who are seniors. Required of 4th year graduating Jewelry + Metals majors. Offered spring.
