With an emphasis on both technical and conceptual growth, the Jewelry/Metals program develops your understanding of how to work expressively with the metal medium.

As you pursue your BFA in Jewelry/Metals, you will learn a sequence of technical skills and will work to solidify a clear, creative approach—whether more individualistic or pertaining to applied design.

The BFA is a professional degree with concentrated areas of specialization, so you will take more art courses than you would in a BA program. At UMass Dartmouth, you also have the advantages of a university education where you can diversify your studies and expand your career opportunities.

In your final year, you'll focus on developing an individualistic approach to your aesthetic, skills, concepts, and ideas. You'll produce a cohesive body of work to be presented in the BFA Exhibition.

Your studies will prepare you to pursue careers in running a studio business, designing for industry, technical jewelry employment, or within a number of related fields.
