Traditional approaches include forming, raising, casting, enameling, electroforming, fabrication, anodizing, tool making, chasing and repoussé, and granulation. Newer approaches include 3D technologies, resin, porcelain, papermaking, felting, and alternative materials.
 
The Metal Program is designed for students who are inquisitive, motivated, and self-disciplined. The moderate sized program promotes a vigorous exchange of ideas while providing an intimate, supportive, and nurturing environment that enables continuous faculty and student interaction. The faculty in Metal encourages diversity and respects individual artistic directions while providing challenges necessary for growth. The Metal Program prepares students for future distinctive and professional achievement in the field of contemporary jewelry and metalwork. Each MFA candidate in the program is afforded the opportunity to teach introductory and intermediate courses in Metal.
