Course content

Our MA Ceramics programme encourages makers to develop an individual voice, and gives you the tools to establish yourself as a contemporary ceramicist. You will be challenged and encouraged to explore your aesthetic and conceptual sensibilities through experimentation in the medium of ceramics.

You will develop a critical understanding of your chosen aspect of ceramics through testing, making, re-making, evaluating and positioning your own practice in the context of the 21st century.

This will include an understanding of the expanded notion of ceramics within a variety of applications and contexts, such as the creative industries, museum and gallery interpretation and curation. You will gain an in-depth knowledge of the material and its contexts.

The programme seeks to encourage your individual voice, and supports the refinement of unique exploration through the medium of ceramics.
