Ceramics

Overview and Facilities

Baylor University's undergraduate ceramics program provides students with a comprehensive immersion into the rich and highly diversified field of studio ceramics. Blending the study of global historical traditions with the development and implementation of contemporary issues and techniques, the ceramics curriculum engages students in the pursuit of technical mastery and a foundational understanding of the medium's expressive potential. An outstanding facility, small class size, professionally active faculty, visiting artists, and class field trips support the curriculum's objective of providing students with a multi-dimensional educational experience.
