Ceramics - MFA
The philosophy of the ceramics area is that no one style, attitude, approach or aesthetic direction is emphasized.
During the time that a student is in the ceramics program, they are expected to develop and focus their energy towards producing a body of work for their MFA exhibition. This work should show a sense of professional maturity and should be cohesive and stylistically consistent.
Current minimum course requirements are 57 semester hours of approved graduate course work plus 3 hours of Graduate Exit Studio, ARST 9210 (which includes a final exhibition, portfolio, final oral examination and a written report).
Course requirements include 36 hours of studio , 6 hours of art history, 3 hours of art criticism or art history, 12 hours of approved electives, 3 hours of graduate exit studio (ARST 9210).
Facilities: Graduate studios are in a butler-type building and are available 24 hours a day. Two large rooms are divided into approximately 14 by 14 foot work spaces, depending on enrollment and individual student needs.
