Students may undertake an independent creative project during the last year of their major. In the past, students have created and performed solo shows, mounted musicals and new plays, created installations, and written research papers. Ultimately, the project must be steeped in the discipline’s creative process. Interested students build a committee of three tenure-track faculty members who will guide the student in their project and serve on the one-hour oral examination committee. Students will enroll in 4 hours (10 maximum) of 4998 research credit in the Department of Theatre, Film, and Media Arts with their advisor. Applications are due two semesters before the intended graduate date.
