The ceramics area offers basic and advanced courses in hand building and potter's wheel techniques. A raku class is offered during the Minimester. The final term culminates in a senior project. You are encouraged to work closely with a ceramics faculty adviser each term to develop an individualized course sequence. Students in this concentration can complete the B.S./B.A. or B.F.A.
