Senior Distinction Research
Fall 2021 - Spring 2022 // IM496 & IM497
This year-long research opportunity is designed to serve as a capstone course for seniors who emphasize Integrated Media Arts in their POE. Students are expected to examine design theory and research methods relevant to a topic, theme, issue, or problem that has served as an area of special interest. This course is intended to allow students to develop, compose, organize, revise, and edit their own writing. Through written assignments students will have the opportunity to produce a thesis or creative project. Students must have senior standing and have a POE in IMA (designated or individualized). Distinction may be achieved if the candidate meets the IMA Distinction requirements.

Passion Project Virtual Exhibition

What is a Passion Project?
Students are asked to develop a self-sustainable project related to a passion they have yet to investigate. The project can not meet the needs of another class, club, or position on campus. Choosing a subject that they are passionate about, this project allows students to showcase their skills, learn a new skill, and most importantly create a top portfolio piece! With the incorporation of time tracking, deadline setting, proofing of stages, and final deliverables; students are able to learn key creative skills to prepare them to work in any creative industry.
