2016-2017 Catalog

Independent projects and honors

The department offers advanced students the opportunity to develop their interests in an intense experience of individualized learning. In partnership with faculty, students work for one or two semesters on rigorously designed projects that culminate with critical review by art department faculty and, in the case of honors, appraisal by professionals from outside the department.
