Minor in Ceramics

Gain a deep understanding of how aesthetics, craftsmanship, and function work together in the creation of handmade pottery.

With a minor in ceramics, you will develop an understanding and appreciation for functional pottery. You will study the elements and principles of art and design, learn techniques of the potter’s wheel, understand glazing, and participate in the firing process. Emphasis is placed on contemporary trends in ceramics as well as movements throughout history.

You will also have the opportunity to sell your creations at our Student Pottery Sale, held each semester on campus.

The ceramics minor complements our art and graphic design programs, as well programs in business, humanities, and sciences.
