Program description

The four-year BA (Hons) degree programme in the field of ceramics and glass art has the vision of providing students with practical skills in creating and presenting their own original works through workshops, as well as learning material chemistry and traditional techniques.

The programme is based on a triadic bond between technical education, critical thinking and historical perspective that encourages students to demonstrate their artistic practice with ceramic and/or glass material as part of their intellectual and critical inquiry. A wide range of practice-led studios and workshops offer common strategies for creative thinking, complemented by lectures and seminars where visual arts and history meet in the fields of philosophy, psychology, architecture, design, technology and natural sciences.
