Students interested in studying ceramics also have the option of a ceramics emphasis in the Art BFA

Academic and Career Opportunities

The Department of Art and Art History offers students many chances to network and get involved: for example, CLAY at the UofU is a student ceramic organization that hosts events and professional development opportunities for members. Students minoring in ceramics can participate in annual extracurricular events, such as wood and soda firings, visiting artist demonstrations and critics, participating in the Holiday Sale, CLAY Club events, and participating in the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Conference (NCECA), held annually across the country.
