VIS430Y1: Thesis Project (Critical Practices)


The culmination of the Critical Practices Specialist degree, this year-long course is composed of a Fall research session and Winter production session. Students determine which type of critical practice is to be undertaken over the course of the year with the instructor. Options include a written thesis on a historical or theoretical topic, the development of a publishing platform, or the production of an exhibition or screening program. Students are required to actively participate in all aspects of the course, including faculty-led class discussions, critiques, research, written thesis statement, and production.
