Master's Thesis Seminar: Architecture


Required for MArch. Masters Thesis Seminar and Masters Thesis Studio are the preparatory courses for Masters Thesis I and II. The course includes four meetings of the Integrative Programming Seminar. The student's educational experience culminates in Thesis. The architecture thesis programs demand, scholarly research, and the application of ideas that give meaning and significance to both design and research. Masters Thesis students are expected to engage advanced exploration of the cultural contexts within which their work is situated. Thesis is understood here to be a form of inquiry integrating knowledge within and outside the design disciplines. Students in the Master's Thesis Seminar create Thesis Proposals which initiate and frame their subsequent inquiries in Thesis and Masters Methods of Inquiry. This is a writing intensive class. See the Masters of Architecture Thesis Handbook regarding preparation for the course. This is a 16 week course that includes a unit which addresses the integration of program, budget, codes, and zoning in the thesis proposal, this unit meets 4 additional times during the semester on Wednesdays from 7-10 PM.
