Graduate Program in Glass
The School of Art offers both the Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees in Glass. Students in the program are encouraged to develop a sound knowledge of concepts and techniques in the discipline and strong drawing skills. The curriculum is based on the belief that successful creative work results from spending time with one’s ideas and receiving constructive and supportive criticism from faculty and peers. We endeavor to create an atmosphere where students pursue ideas and engage in an extended scholarly dialogue. A major determinant of the success of this program resides in the healthy interaction of students and faculty. Applicants are accepted into the program based on the quality of the work presented in their portfolio, a demonstrated commitment to artistry and an interest and understanding of glass as expressive form.
