MFA JM Overview

Jewelry/Metals Banner


60 credit, two- to three-year program of study

The MFA Artisanry Jewelry/Metals program offers students the opportunity for concentrated studio work involving both technical and conceptual challenge. Through questioning and experimentation, students work to consolidate materials and processes while developing strong conceptual and expressive ideas.

Graduate students are encouraged to pursue individual areas of interest which may include fabrication of jewelry as well as utilitarian and/or sculptural objects. Students work closely with a faculty advisor to ensure guided exploration to develop the advanced skills, confidence, and self-discipline necessary to sustain a productive artistic career. Individual meetings take place on a weekly basis and critiques occur each month. Studies culminate with both a visual and written thesis.
