Sculpture and Ceramics (BA)
The Sculpture & Ceramics Major at Loyola University Chicago explores the interplay between Art, Craft & Design, and reflects on the vital contribution that three dimensional art forms make to material culture. Enhanced by a long history and a diversity of contemporary practice, the curriculum offers courses in 3D Design, Ceramics, Sculpture and Jewelry which investigate a variety of perspectives and approaches (conceptual, theoretical and empirical). The program is housed in the Ralph Arnold Fine Arts Annex at the Lakeshore Campus which feature studio spaces for 3D Design, Sculpture, Ceramics, & Jewelry.
The major provides opportunity to develop unique capabilities which can be applied to a broad range of career paths. Students gain entry to higher education, or they can focus strategically on building a distinctive life in the visual arts though specialized production, promotion and collaboration. Many skills are transferrable for students interested in a career in the applied arts (interior architecture/product design/advertising & PR/theater & film/museums & galleries - exhibition design and production, props, sets, special effects etc.).
