Students can complete the M.A. in Ceramic Arts program coursework in two or more years; many students take advantage of courses offered during weekends and summer semesters to fulfill the program requirements. By following these three steps, students can plan to meet their program requirements at a pace that meets their professional needs.
Review the Ceramic Arts Program Planning Guide, which allows students to plan out their coursework on a semester-by-semester basis.
Look up the Ceramic Arts program requirements, course descriptions, and Graduate School policies and procedures in the catalog.
Consult with Joyce Michaud, the program director and academic advisor. She can assist students with planning their program of study, especially in light of their professional and career goals. All students must consult with her before signing up for any capstone, thesis or independent study-related project.
At the Graduate School at Hood College, students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty who can assist in the pursuit of academic and professional goals. Students are encouraged to get to know their faculty advisers and course professors to make the most of their graduate school experience.
