Emphasis is placed on concept development, critical analysis, creative problem solving, and technical proficiency. Since Art Jewelry & Metalsmithing is based in traditions of function and adornment, and engages multiple social and cultural issues, students are encouraged to explore cross-disciplinary work in order to develop a mature artistic understanding of the complex relationships between the field of Art Jewelry & Metalsmithing, the arts, and society. Potential career options for a student with a B.F.A, emphasis in Art Jewelry & Metalsmithing include studio artist, jewelry designer for industry, proprietor of limited edition jewelry/hollowware/tabletop business, bench jeweler, product designer, museum restorer, curator, and educator.
