BFA in Art: Ceramics

All aspects of ceramic art are taught in this program, from mixing and forming clay to the firing and glazing process. Wheel-working and hand building are given equal emphasis and students are encouraged to develop their own personal sense of form and shape.

Self-discovery and class discussion of the creative process are integral aspects of working in ceramics. Webster University's ceramic studio includes eight gas and electric kilns, a glaze spray booth, sandblasting equipment, a slab roller and a ball mill.

Students pursuing a BFA with an emphasis in Ceramics are required to complete 15 credit hours in art history, 64 credit hours in studio courses and three credit hours writing a BFA thesis.

Advanced standing in the BFA program normally is granted after a student submits an application and has his/her work reviewed by the faculty. This process takes places one year prior to graduation.

If you plan on majoring in art, dance, music, or theatre, you must complete a portfolio review or audition as part of your application to Webster.
