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.

Integrated Community Partnerships
Fall 2021 - Spring 2022 // IMA Practicum
Integrated Media Arts Practicum student researchers are required to work with a local community client to design and develop practical and functional deliverables that are both user-friendly and sustainable for the business or organization. Individual student learning objectives are connected in response to the needs and requests of the community client at the start of the research project. This experiential learning opportunity offers both the student and the client the option to seek and obtain real-world knowledge and skills related to various areas of visual communication design. A series of client-based research projects from the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters will be presented by IMA students.
