Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art with a Concentration in CERAMICS/GLASS


We believe it is important for ceramic and glass students to understand their role as artists and we encourage them to explore the potential of their chosen media for developing an individual direction and personal art aesthetic. Emphasis is placed on helping students to develop their technical proficiency as they explore both sculptural and functional approaches. As they expand their decision-making skills within the complexities of their chosen media students participate in all process phases, from the making of clay and development of glazes to kiln firing and kiln working.

Courses follow a chronological sequence from lower-division introductory experiences to specialized upper-division courses in ceramic sculpture, glass casting, forming and blowing as well as architectural stained glass.

We encourage you to visit the University Academic Catalog to become more familiar with the curriculum.
