Supervised preparation for Producing Thesis and fulfillment of internship requirement for producing concentrates. Course is divided into two parts:
Thesis preparation: one on one meetings with Professor to make sure students have fulfilled necessary requirements before embarking on a thesis; and to make sure proposed thesis fits within the required guidelines of the concentration. Regular meetings are held with all thesis candidates, and observed by prospective candidates to allow students to hear about problems and solutions. After submission of theses, each student is required to do an oral presentation of their thesis to the group before they can graduate.
Internship: Students will be exposed to real-life industry situations by working inside a production company. Students will be matched up according to interests and skills with development or physical production companies, and expected to work for a full semester on a regular part-time basis. Work will be monitored by means of weekly reports that must be submitted to the Professor, and a final report at the end of the semester that sums up the value of the internship. Information will be shared among students at the regular class meetings as described above.
