SUMMARY

Choosing to study Ceramics is not only a valuable choice, but naturally a requisite first step for scholars wishing to begin a career as an industrial producer, a studio artist, or a ceramics instructor. Interestingly, ceramics is a very rare degree being the 375th most popular degree. In the last year, there were 96 ceramics graduates. In-state tuition for ceramics at private universities is, on average, 3.1 times more pricey than their public counterparts.

With only 40 universities offering ceramics there could be a more finite list of the institutions you can choose from. If you are hoping to surround yourself with other ceramics majors, look at colleges in Pennsylvania which have the most students admitted to ceramics annually. More generally, the top region to pursue ceramics is in the Mid East region with Maryland Institute College of Art, SUNY at Fredonia, and Temple University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to study ceramics is the American Athletic Conference with Temple University representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best university for ceramics is Maryland Institute College of Art. You might also want to check out our list of best colleges.

While there is much variation in earnings potential; top positions can enjoy pay up to $89,600. Straight out of college, the minimum earning positions within the ceramics field make $27,000, which is an alright wage.
