Minor in Ceramics and Sculpture
The Ceramics and Sculpture minor is often added as a secondary focus of study in order to compliment or enhance a student's major or chosen career path. Students may also choose to add the minor in order to pursue an area of interest without the responsibility of a major.
The minor embodies many of the key historical, critical, theoretical, methodological and contextual elements embedded within the more comprehensive framework of the major.
Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:
- Comprehend, analyze and interpret the visual, functional, psychological, and social elements that constitute a work of art
- Apply a range of materials, processes and techniques within their chosen concentration as a primary form of artistic expression
- Engage in self-directed problem solving analysis and critical thinking, and take creative and intellectual risks in the production of original artwork
- Comprehend the vocabulary, principles, theories and methodologies particular to their concentration, and interpret and articulate them through their own creative process
- Employ scholarly and visual research in developing concepts that underlie their artistic intentions, and effectively communicate them orally and in written form
A total of 18 credit hours are required for the minor in Ceramics and Sculpture.
