Independent Student Work

Master’s theses and Directed Focus Studies, as well as independent projects completed in specialization classes, inform each student's professional, competitive portfolio. As of 2024, students have completed 2124 directed focus studies and 647 theses.

In their independent projects, Guildhall students pursue unique interests, analyze industry trends and topics, and solve critical issues to demonstrate mastery of their specialized crafts. Unity, Valve, Epic, Microsoft, Nintendo, Intel, Dell, Oculus Rift, and America’s Army, have all sponsored past and present research projects for our students through grants, scholarships, and technology.
