About the Program

The Minor in Craft and Material Studies allows students from outside of the program to enrich their degrees with rigorous and engaging coursework. 

Craft, at its core, is about understanding how to make things. Material Studies is about bringing an idea into the physical world through a deep understanding of materials and their potential. You will examine diverse materials and cultivate your personal curiosity. You will create work along a broad spectrum, from functional design to conceptual art, and refine your communication skills through writing, presenting and discussing your work.

The Department of Craft/Material Studies has a limited number of spaces available for the minor and is not currently accepting applications for the minor in Craft/Material Studies.
