ARCH-501 Degree Project: Research

3 Credits

Thesis research is a preparatory course for a design thesis and/or a senior degree project. Students review and write short essays on selected subjects and produce an illustrated manifesto, documentation and bibliography for their design thesis. The final project includes two credits of research followed by five credits of design. Proposals, portfolios and choice of designs are reviewed the semester before the research begins and require the approval of the chairperson of undergraduate architecture. Submission of written proposals for the degree project must be submitted to the chair's office in the previous semester, prior to the completion of all requirements for entering the ninth semester of design. Completion of all required architectural history, technology, methods and practice courses are required.
