Masters degrees in Ceramics allow postgraduates to critically analyse and technically develop the mineral compounds which compose clay-based products.
Related postgraduate specialisms are Conservation of Ceramics and Ceramics Design. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Design Technology or Materials Science.
Courses in this field are highly practical, involving examination of the properties of different ceramics including pottery, glass, brick, porcelain and cement.
Practices range from traditional techniques such as glazing and firing, to lab experiments and 3d modelling.
Careers in this field are varied, covering several sectors. For example, you might explore roles in heritage management, such as the conservation of ceramics in listed buildings and heritage sites.
Alternatively, you might explore routes in Ceramics Design, from decorative materials such as ornaments, through to functional items like homeware. You might also branch into industrial or architectural ceramics, designing and developing products such as windows, bricks, and foundations.
