HIGHER STUDIES IN CERAMICS

 

HIGHER STUDIES IN CERAMICS

The Higher Studies in Ceramics are made up of 240 ECTS credits spread over 4 years (60 credits per year). In these studies you can choose two different specializations: Art and Ceramic Design or Science and Ceramic Technology. The first year is common for both but on the second year students have to choose their specialization. Furthermore, there are common subjects and other specialization and optional subjects that students can pick over. On the fourth year, students have to carry out their Final Project and their working experience or practicum.
