Craft Certificate


Return to Academic Organization and Programs of Study Return to: Academic Organization and Programs of Study

The Craft Certificate Program is designed for those seeking a professional-level training in craft media without the objective of a college degree. This provides an especially good opportunity for those who already have a degree and wish to focus on specialized training. Students finishing the Craft Certificate Program receive a Certificate of Completion from the Craft Center. This represents a significant level of accomplishment, but it is not a college degree.

Certificate Program admission standards are the same as for the BFA degree program. Course requirements are similar to the BFA curriculum, but exclude general education courses and the BFA thesis project and exhibition. Independent study credits  may, at the discretion of the faculty advisor, be applied to a studio project representing the level of accomplishment at culmination of studies. Students in the Certificate Program must maintain at least six credits of coursework per semester, and must complete the foundation requirements within the first eighteen credits in the program.
