ART 500 - Individual Research

The opportunity to pursue honors is offered to selected seniors by invitation only. At the end of the fall term of the senior year, the Visual Art faculty meets as a group and identifies promising students from the ranks of those taking ART 399 - Selected Topics . Those students who show exemplary work are invited to pursue Honors by the department. Faculty legislation requires that honors work must be above and beyond the normal scope of the major. Two courses, ART 399   and ART 500, will ultimately make up the year-long course of study above and beyond the normal major requirements. Therefore, the student pursuing honors must register spring semester for both ART 500: Honors and ART 402 - Senior Seminar  and expand on the work begun fall semester in ART 399   to produce a body of work at least one and three-fourth times greater than what is required for the Senior Seminar alone. Final requirements include a written thesis and oral defense. The visual art faculty as a whole determines the grade for the ART 500 course and whether honors will be awarded.
