The School of Art offers both the Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees in Jewelry/Metals/Enameling. Both programs prepare students with the professional skills, strategies, and experiences necessary to ignite and sustain the momentum for a career in studio craft, teaching or other facets of the field.
The program places a strong emphasis on critical thinking and allows students to build individual research strategies for developing a coherent and distinctive body of work. Investigations of inter-media and interdisciplinary relationships are part of the curricular focus. Students are expected to be conscious of and involved in contemporary practices, discourse, and trends nationally and globally among the field and within the larger arts/crafts/design movements. In addition to time in their own studio, graduate students have opportunities to enhance existing skills and knowledge by observing undergraduate class demonstrations and critiques. Graduate students are enouraged to use both traditional and contemporary studio practices while having access to an array of metalsmithing equipment, enameling kilns, as well as a schoolwide digital fabrication lab.
Highlights of our program include:
All of the School of Art studios and classrooms are located under one roof in the Center for the Visual Arts, which had its grand opening in 2016.
Applicants are expected to have a B.F.A. or B.A. in jewelry/metalsmithing or equivalent experience or skill, with a 2.75 overall grade-point average (3.0 in the art major).

The faculty in Jewelry/Metals/Enameling has been strong since the beginning of the program in 1950. Over the years, Mary Ann Scherr, Paul Van Dynwick, Bruce Metcalf, and Kathleen Browne were program heads. For many years, Mel Someroski headed the enameling area.
