The purpose of the Midpoint Review Meeting is for you to present your thesis proposal and your skills as a designer to a committee of seasoned reviewers including the department directors and special industry guests.Your topic should be thoroughly researched and you should present evidence of your ability to achieve your stated goals. It is your job to convince the committee that your topic has merit AND that you are well-suited to take it on.
Through graduate study you are preparing to become a leader in your chosen area of study and specialization. The Thesis Project will demonstrate the knowledge and skills gained during this undertaking. Your completed Thesis Project should be a visually powerful and cohesive body of work that represents your achievements in the Academy of Art University's Graduate School of Graphic Design.
