Scope and content

The collection contains theses from 1989-1997, which is prior to the establishment of the Graduate Graphic Design Department in 2016. During this period students were able to earn master's degrees through the College's Graduate Studies program. The collection continues in 2018 starting with theses from the first group of students to graduate from the department.

System of arrangement

Until 1997, Graduate Graphic Design theses were bound as books and shelved using a cutter number system (last initial followed by a number). Theses submitted to the Archives after 1997 are arranged chronologically.
