About

The Jewelry and Metals program of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth offers students the opportunity for concentrated studio work involving both technical and conceptual challenges. Through questioning and experimentation, students work to consolidate materials and processes while developing strong conceptual and expressive ideas.

Overview

Graduate students of the Jewelry and Metals program of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth are encouraged to pursue individual areas of interest which may include fabrication of jewelry as well as utilitarian and/or sculptural objects. Students work closely with a faculty advisor to ensure guided exploration to develop the advanced skills, confidence, and self-discipline necessary to sustain a productive artistic career. Individual meetings take place on a weekly basis and critiques occur each month. Studies culminate with both a visual and written thesis.
