The Hood College Graduate Certificate in the Ceramic Arts is a post-baccalaureate program providing an advanced studio experience to assist students in achieving a professional level of proficiency in the ceramic arts. With attention to the application of universal design principles and the unique requirements for teaching the ceramic arts at a variety of institutional levels, the program has been designed to assist students in the development of technical proficiency, refinement of personal aesthetic expression and production of a comprehensive body of work.

Through study, studio production and objective-subjective analysis of creative work, the program will prepare the student for the challenges, demands and opportunities of careers in ceramic arts and related art fields.
