Bradley’s ceramics program prepares you to be an active educator and creator in the community.

The Bradley Advantage

You can take one of three paths to a ceramics degree — a B.A., B.S. or Bachelor of Fine Arts. The B.S. and B.A. give you a strong foundation in art history and the liberal arts, while the B.F.A. is considered the professional degree pathway which allows you to work more intensively in ceramics and other media of your choice. Hands-on ceramics courses help you master the medium and develop your creativity. If you’re interested in broadening your career options, you may pair ceramics with another major. Beyond the classroom, you can participate in student art clubs, community art projects and student‐run campus publications.

Successful Outcomes

Ceramics alumni have opened their own studios, making and marketing their own work to customers, collectors, galleries, juried exhibitions and high-end craft markets. They also are active as educators and art center administrators across the U.S. Many have pursued graduate degrees.
