Ceramics and other studio areas in the MFA program recently moved into a newly renovated, state-of-the-art facility on the main SIUE campus. The ceramics studio is generously equipped to accommodate student exploration of the broad range of possibilities within the ceramic arts. Each graduate student has their own private studio with 24-hour access to the building year-round.
