Jewelry and metalsmithing

Metalsmithing is both an aesthetic and conceptual vehicle. Our master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree program provides you with a supportive atmosphere of professional faculty who allow you to work traditionally yet present new perspectives on the discipline and question assumptions.

Our facilities accommodate traditional and nontraditional jewelry and metalsmithing techniques. Graduate students have private or semi-private studios in a building that is also home to ceramics, fiber arts, printmaking, and sculpture. Cross-disciplinary work between within this community as well as with the rest of the school and Syracuse University is encouraged.

In addition to the metalsmithing faculty, you will have the opportunity to work with and learn from faculty in other disciplines and take advantage of our strong visiting artists program. Recent guests have included Tacey Rosolowski, Chris Irick, Harriete Estel Berman ’74, and Valentin Yotkov.
