BFA Thesis is a two semester self-directed project in which students apply design skills and theoretical interests to a topic of their choosing. Through a process of research, writing, and group discussion in the first semester, each student develops a deep understanding of a specific area of interest drawing on design and non-design knowledge resulting in a research paper. In the second semester, students develop design responses based in the research done in the first semester. There are no formal or media-based requirements for these projects, each student is wholly responsible for the development of all parts of the project. This challenges young designers accustomed  to responding to time-limited briefs with clearly defined deliverables. All 28 of this semester’s BFA students met and exceeded that challenge with innovative designs across a very wide range of media.
