An integrated two-term experience, the thesis program at SCI-Arc is designed to engage the interests and methods of working of each individual student. The first term is primarily dedicated to research, and to the development of a formal thesis proposal that rigorously lays the groundwork for the in-depth design study expected during the following term. The thesis term itself is dedicated to exploring responses to the inquiry posed by the thesis proposal.
Graduate thesis reflects SCI-Arc's rigorous architectural education that is responsive to cultural change, promotes architectural experimentation and creative and academic freedom, and supports a fluid relationship between education and practice.
