Department of Ceramics & Glass
  The Ceramics & Glass Department aims to bring up artists with an enterprising spirit, who will lead the way in setting the trends of the 21st century modern formative arts, and offers art education based on a wide range of practical art experience encompassing art glass and formative arts as well as typical modern ceramics with a view to contributing to the advancement of learning.
  The objective of grafting ceramics onto glass is to develop a basis for a new type of formative arts and crafts by studying the common features of the two genres and establishing a system complementing each other, which is not just a simple combination of the two different materials. For this purpose courses of material research, seminar, achitectural glass & ceramics will be on the curriculum in addition to the courses of ceramics and glass to train versatile artists.
  Academic symposiums organized by the Ceramics Institute, a supporting organization, as well as special lectures given by the artists and professors at home and abroad and empirical research will also be offered enhancing the students' understanding of the fast-changing trends of international ceramics and glass to turn out an artist equipped with practical skill based on theory.
  The Department provides for students a special scholarship of the Ceramics Institute apart from the one granted by the school, and is now making an effort aiming to construct a framework for the progressive Department through an interchange between the sister schools and the industrial institutions concerned at home and abroad.
  Many of the Department's graduates either open a studio of their own or join various companies in the ceramic and glass industries or work as a designer for a large or small business. Lately many of them find their jobs in the graphics business, and some choose to continue their education at a graduate school at home and abroad, aspiring to become a competent future educator.
