Degrees offered in the Metalsmithing program include:
The UAF Metalsmithing program offers BFA and MFA degrees in Metalsmithing. The undergraduate studio courses in jewelry making and metal fabrication are offered at three skill levels. Beginning students learn to manipulate flat nonferrous sheet and wire; Intermediate students learn toolmaking, casting, and cold connections; Advanced students learn to manipulate metal with hammers, heat, chemicals, and other tools. Students learn critical thinking in designing functional/non-functional objects and through problem-solving during the project’s completion. Students are encouraged to develop their aesthetics and technical skills through experimentation in design and use of materials.
