5.8       Integrated Summative Assessment: Graduate Project/Thesis (Trimester 6)

The fourth and final integrated assessment is held at the end of trimester 6 and evolves around the graduation project. The graduation project should have resulted in a presentation of new work, as well as a thesis.

At this juncture students are expected to prepare and deliver a formal presentation of their finished graduation project and related graduation thesis. The graduation project should have resulted in a presentation of new work, as well as a thesis that both demonstrate the agreed learning outcomes (as laid out in the Course hand book Section 3.2 page 7) and satisfy the agreed Assessment criteria (as laid out in the Course hand book Section 5.10 page 31.) for a Graduation Project at a Master level.

Prior to the assessment process you must deposit archival versions of the material you wish to submit for examination on the ARCHIVE TOWER in the study prior to the presentation. (any questions about this please address to Andre.) We will not pass people who have not delivered appropriate documentation of their work on time.

The Graduate Project is awarded ECTS through Self-Directed Research. This is why the credits are increased as students enter into the development of their final project and thesis. The last three trimesters of the course are primarily reserved for individual research and production of the Graduate Project. Work on the graduate project however begins at the very beginning of the second year.

Final projects offer a concentrated period of time to process the insights and experiences gained throughout the first three trimesters and to translate their implications into individual work and working methods. In this process, students are expected to be able to not only produce new work, but also to develop a strong sense of the criteria that are crucial for the evaluation and development of their own creative work.

Accompanying final projects all students write an essay or 'project report' developing ideas related to or directly arising from the project. This Master thesis is of the length of circa 7,000 - 8,000 words.

You are required to deliver to the MMDC Administration Office: 3 Hard copies + a low resolution PDF (not above 1.5 megabytes.) The printed copies should be: A4; text in a point 12 legible typeface; with numbered pages.

The title page should state:

[Your Name] [Title] Thesis submitted to: the Department of Media Design and Communication, Piet Zwart Institute Willem de Kooning Academy in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the final examination for the Master Media Design and Communication for the degree of : Master of Arts Adviser: [name] Second Reader: [name] Word count: 8000 words (max)
