Although thesis students are encouraged to start "naming" their theses right from the start, we thought we'd share what's in store for this year's crop. Here are the (sometimes "working"!) titles and topics for this year's projects, and be sure to join us on May 3rd at the SVA Theatre to see them live! (Interested to see projects from previous years?
