An MFA candidate must schedule an exhibition or presentation of the completed thesis project.
Previous studio work may not be included, nor any work completed outside the approved thesis proposal.
Students who are passed on to thesis may select a major professor from the graduate faculty with the approval of the graduate coordinator.
The major professor, customarily from the student’s area of focus, then becomes the chair of the student’s thesis committee.
A paper length of 10-25 pages that include images of the thesis exhibition work is normal.
A typed draft must be given to the committee chair for review and correction at least four weeks prior to the scheduled oral examination.
Two copies of this form are due to the graduate coordinator two weeks prior to the Graduate School deadline.
The request for Master’s Examination and Degree Audit form (with the list of thesis committee members) is submitted to the Graduate School at least two weeks prior to the oral examination deadline or by the deadline for degree candidates, whichever comes earliest. The graduate coordinator will send out reminders via email.
The committee is composed of a minimum of three members (maximum of five) selected primarily from the graduate faculty.
Students then solicit other faculty to complete the committee subject to the approval of the chair.
