Digital Portfolio

As part of the MAWRM program requirements, you will be required to develop a digital portfolio. This portfolio will showcase a select number of projects that you have completed during your time as an MAWRM student and should house your strongest academic work. MAWRM students often feature a number of visual projects, research projects, and the final MAWRM project or publishable paper within their digital portfolios. The portfolio also will include content writing about each of your included projects. The content writing draws from your theoretical knowledge and the MAWRM Orals reading list.

Check out some of the digital portfolios of recent MAWRM alums:
