As a student progresses to the Upper College, the course work increasingly consists of small studio discussion groups and seminars in which active participation is expected.
Advisory conferences, tutorials, and independent work prepare the student for the Senior Project. This yearlong independent project may be a critical or theoretical monograph, a collection of essays, or an artistic work, such as an exhibition of original paintings, sculpture, or photography; performances in dance, theater, or music; dance choreography or musical composition; or the creation of a short film.
