Prerequisite: ARTS 576. (6 credits/lab fee)
Thesis Research provides the opportunity to proceed with in-depth research in the candidate’s
chosen area. The candidate is expected to produce a significant body of work and supporting
documentation of the aesthetic and technical research as evidence of his or her growing ability
to develop and continue an aesthetic and technical dialogue. The master’s thesis must exhibit
qualities that are associated with original research: scholarship, logical consistency, creativity,
and comprehensiveness. MFA candidates are required to submit the final draft of their written
thesis at the completion of ARTS 580 before concurrent registration for ARTS 595 begins.
The MFA candidate must consult the Hood College MFA Thesis Guidelines for detailed
information and expectations and satisfy all requirements found in the guidelines.
