Studio Arts and Film/Video

    1. Introductory Studios: At least two half-courses should be completed by the end of the sophomore year related to the student's area of focus.

    2. Intermediate Studios: At least two half-courses should be completed by the end of the junior year related to the student's area of focus.
      Note: A film/video thesis will be allowed only if it represents the 5th and 6th half-courses in the medium of the thesis. A studio thesis application must be accompanied by a portfolio for review before a thesis will be approved (see further information under "Thesis").

    3. Historical and Theoretical Courses: At least three half-courses are required. Students must take at least two historical or theoretical half-courses related to their area of focus in VES and at least one historical or theoretical half-course outside of their area of focus (for example, a course on the history or theory of film for students focusing on studio, or a course on the history of art, architecture, or the built environment for students focusing on film/video).

    4. Electives within the concentration: Five additional half-courses in VES, two of which may be VES 99, the senior thesis or senior project tutorial. VES 99 is considered an elective and is not a required course.
