Master of Fine Arts in Jewelry & Metal Arts
Academy of Art University

Program Details

The Academy of Art University offers online art programs including the Master of Fine Arts in Jewelry & Metal Arts.  This online art degree emphasizes advanced studio coursework and thesis concept development.  Courses focus on mastering fabrication and casting skills, teaching digital techniques, and exploring cross-cultural themes.  This differs from the Master of Arts degree which introduces professional practice into designs and concepts while cultivating students’ artistic voices at an advanced level.  The Master of Fine Arts degree also emphasizes individual directed study, or thesis paths, which lead to visually powerful and conceptually cohesive professional portfolios.  Both degrees help students learn to critically discuss their work using objective criteria and have students working at advanced levels with their chosen mediums and techniques.
