Masters degrees in Ceramics Design offer advanced study of (and training in the creation of) ceramic artefacts, for aesthetic and practical purposes.
Taught MA and MFA courses are typical for this field, though research-oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Art or Design Technology.
Courses in this field may offer either a highly theoretical or highly practical approach to Ceramics Design, depending on your interests.
For example, you may opt to take a more historic approach to your learning, exploring the development of ceramics practices over time, and the production of culturally significant ceramic artefacts.
On the other hand, you may wish to develop your vocational skills in the physical and creative production of various pieces of ceramics products, from art pieces to domestic products.
Your skills may be applied to the independent or large-scale manufacture of various ceramic items, including jewellery, pottery and furniture. You could also branch into more exotic careers such as archaeological projects, assisting with the typography of ceramic artefacts from different historic sites.
