The MFA Artisanry - Jewelry/Metals is a 60 credit, 2- to 3-year program of study.

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.
