Complete Your Degree: Portfolio/Master's Thesis

​ Degree Completion Options

This option is available for all students. Most students typically meet the graduation completion requirement by completing a portfolio. Students present their portfolios and network with industry professionals at the annual Portfolio Showcase.

Master's Thesis
Students who attain a 3.7 GPA or higher and obtain prior approval from the graduate program director have the option to complete a thesis instead of the portfolio. Approved students completing a thesis need to start the process at least 9-12 months before graduation and will enroll in PRAD 599 as their 12th and final course in the quarter they defend their thesis.
