The BFA Metal program offers students the opportunity to work in a state of the art facility with faculty that are actively engaged artists who exhibit and lecture internationally. The rigorous curriculum explores the technical, aesthetic and conceptual aspects of contemporary jewelry and metalsmithing. Coursework is supplemented by field trips and participation in professional conferences.
The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree is a full-time two-year course of study. Building upon the individual's research interests and undergraduate experience, graduate study in metal at SUNY New Paltz is a self-directed course of inquiry and action that cultivates responsibility, self-reliance, and confidence.
