Program Description

Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)

MFA in Ceramics

The MFA is a professional degree for practicing artists, craftspeople, or designers who desire to leave a lasting impression on their fields by devotion to their work and high standards of discipline and artistic ideals. The MFA is generally a two-year, full-time program that involves the presentation of a thesis. The thesis includes written documentation and the formal exhibition of a body of work.

Admission requirements



Applicants should hold a baccalaureate degree in a field of arts, sciences, or education from a regionally accredited institution in the United States. Applicants should demonstrate, through the quality of the undergraduate record and creative production, a genuine, professional potential. (Please see section regarding nonmatriculated students.) The undergraduate degree should include 75 quarter credit hours (50 semester hours) in studio courses.

International students need a minimum score of 550 (paper-based) or 80 (Internet-based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language. An IELTS overall band score of 6.5 will also be accepted. Those coming from countries where the baccalaureate degree is not given for programs in the practice of art may be admitted to graduate study if the diploma or certificate received approximates the standards of the BFA, BA, or BS degrees, and if their academic records and portfolios indicate an ability to meet graduate standards.



Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics and Ceramic Sculpture

The ceramics studio embraces the contemporary spectra of aesthetic ideas and innovative techniques to educate and train professional artists/craftspeople. It strives to support students’ career goals with pragmatic information and suitable facilities and equipment.

Our structured courses address specific issues inherent to utilitarian pottery, vessel aesthetics, ceramics sculpture, and mixed media. The ceramics program also receives substantial reinforcement from the other craft studios because they, too, explore similar formats and concerns that face artists and craftspeople in the 21st century.
