The philosophy of the ceramics area within the department of art is to build a solid foundation upon which to explore and develop strong personal ceramic work. Building upon ceramic history and tradition and blending contemporary art making approaches, students will develop proficient craftsmanship and technical skills and realize the potential limitless aesthetic and conceptual possibilities of the medium, expanding "ceramics" to be inclusive of mixed media and installation.

Students at all levels participate in a critical dialogue and do responses, readings and writing, as these are essential to furthering an appreciation and understanding for the arts and vital skills for the developing artist.
