K-State Ceramics Post-Baccalaureate Program

Kansas State University Ceramics

Non-Certificate Post-Baccalaureate Program

The K-State Ceramics Non-Certificate Post-Baccalaureate program was created to offer opportunities to artists who have completed a bachelor’s degree program and are looking to work in an active academic ceramics studio. Artists who are transitioning out of or back into school can work in the academic setting while developing a more independent studio practice. Our post-baccalaureate is also a system to support a visiting (international) artist, someone working on a large project, or building a portfolio for applying to graduate school or residencies.

Post-baccalaureate students at K-State receive a personal studio space and are actively involved in the K-State Ceramics program. Post-baccalaureate students attend the advanced undergraduate ceramics seminar and are invited to participate in group graduate critiques. Opportunities to assist faculty in teaching and in the studio are also offered. There are anywhere from one to six post-baccalaureate students studying at K-State at any given time. Through individual meetings, seminar classes, and interaction with faculty, graduates, and the resident artist; students receive valuable critical feedback and guidance in pursuing a career in the arts.
