Ceramics is a medium in which the practitioner occupies very different positions and frequently has opposing priorities and values drawn from previous personal experiences, technical competence and tacit knowledge.
The MA Ceramics programme is for individuals seeking to extend and develop their practice as well as deepen their knowledge and understandings of the subject, as future practitioners, researchers or academics.
The MA programme allows each student to:
• develop their authorship of advanced studio work
• be analytically rigorous
• develop a greater capacity for reflection
‘This is a programme that encourages the highest level of self-criticism and independence’ David Whiting, External Examiner
Students are encouraged to challenge norms and question conventions through fusing materiality and concept. This approach is underpinned by a critical and historical approach discourse – a critical language for the both and fine and applied art and design.
At the conclusion of the programme, a very high percentage of MA graduates establish or continue their professional practice, enabled by the links they have made with galleries or organisations associated with the visual arts. Some elect to continue with ceramics at CSAD by undertaking a PhD.

Availability of facilities through 2013/14
As we near completion of our new and exciting home at Llandaff we would like to take this opportunity to inform you of disruption over the coming year.
Over Christmas 2013/14 Textiles will start the move into the new building on December the 16th. As a consequence no textile facilities will be accessible over the Christmas Holiday period. All work will be complete by the start of the new term.
As to our main move from Howard Gardens to Llandaff, postgraduate students will have full access to all workshops for the month of June. After that date it will be necessary to close all our workshops for packing as they will be moved and re-commissioned in our new home in time for the start of the academic year 2014/15. Please note, where possible CSAD will try to find alternative facilities during our move but no guarantee can be made on this.
It is intended for the final show of 2013/14 to be held in the new campus building at Llandaff.
