Material Art &
Design Minor


A minor in Material Art & Design is intended to provide access to concepts, skills, materials and processes to students outside the Material Art & Design program. First-year requirements need to have been completed prior to starting this course of study. The initial two courses provide a grounding in the specific mediums: jewellery, fibre or ceramics. They are also the most common prerequisites for additional courses in those mediums. This minor is also intended to be non-prescriptive, in that students may take complementary courses in other mediums as long as they have the appropriate pre and/or co requisites. Students are strongly advised to check the course descriptions for courses which require pre- and/or co- requisites. These courses are designated with a (▲) in the program listing.

Note: Students in this Major or Minor Program Area are included in the Laptop Program, and are required to pay the associated fees for software and support.
