Ceramics Minor

About the Program



The Marymount Ceramics Program offers a variety of undergraduate courses in ceramics, and offers the only undergraduate degree for ceramics in the region.  While earning a Minor in Ceramics, students are open to study other majors to complement their professional development, including Fine Arts and Education Licensure, Interior Design, Business and Marketing, or any of the other distinguished majors at Marymount University.


There are also amazing internship opportunities for students to take advantage of through the many partnerships associated with the Ceramics Program that include local ceramics manufacturing, local clay centers, and professional artist studios.  The Department of Fine Arts also persistently invites artists for workshops, lectures, and presentations to help supplement the professional development of students.  These events offer direct contact with the types of professionals that Marymount students strive to become.
