Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THE SENIOR THESIS PROJECT COURSES REPLACE ARTS 4881 AND 4901 (SENIOR REVIEW AND SENIOR EXHIBIT), AND PROVIDES A GRADED SENIOR CAPSTONE EXPERIENCE (OTHERS WERE PASS/FAIL. COURSES ALSO INTRODUCE PRACTICAL SKILLS TO THE MAJORS IN CAREER DEVELOPMENT, A WRITTEN THESIS COMPONENT, PUBLIC LECTURE, DIGITAL PORTFOLIO IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ESTABLISHED REVIEW AND EXHIBITION. STUDENTS HAVE BEEN REQUESTING THE INFORMATION REGARDING CAREER SKILLS ON AN INFORMAL BASIS, AND THIS WILL BE AN APPROPRIATE MEANS TO STREAMLINE THE INFORMATION AND PREPARE THEM FOR FUTURE POST-GRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE ARTS. FACULTY ALSO SEEK A COMPONENT TO THE STUDIO ART MAJOR IN LINE WITH OTHER COPLAC ART PROGRAMS AND THAT REFLECT THE QUALITY OF THE STUDIO ART PROGRAM WITHIN THE OVERALL MISSION OF UMM.
