Culminating Experience

Design Your Experience

Students will ideate, develop, and complete a culminating experience or thesis project that is uniquely theirs and offers them the space to make an original contribution to their chosen area of study. Throughout the year, students will create, present, defend, and document an original project. Projects take shape and evolve throughout all three semesters, manifesting as a research project, creative work, or practical project.


Semester One

Students propose, develop, and revise their culminating experience project with input from their advisor and program director.

Semester Two

Early in semester two, students receive final approval from their advisor on their refined proposal. Students also work with their advisor to form the culminating experience committee for their project. Students embark on extensive prototyping and iterating during this semester.

Semester Three

Students complete and present their final project to the culminating experience committee.
