MFA at East Tennessee State University

If you are interested in graduate study in art and love living in the mountains of WNC, the deadline for application to the MFA program at East Tennessee State University is just one week away on February 1.

Located in Johnson City, TN, ETSU is situated in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains just one hour away from Asheville, NC and the Penland School of Crafts. The MFA at ETSU is a three-year, 60 credit program of study in studio art. Ceramics is one of ten studio areas in the ETSU Department of Art & Design, with other areas of study including Drawing, Extended Media, Fibers, Graphic Design, Jewelry, Metals, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture.

The ceramics area has a comprehensive facility that is ideal for graduate study. Our kiln pad includes three newly rebuilt kilns (summer of 2018): a reduction car kiln, a downdraft soda kiln, and a catenary arch wood/salt kiln. We also have a larger manabigama wood kiln as well as pit, raku, and 6 electric kilns. Graduate students are provided individual working space within a shared graduate-only studio and ETSU offers competitive funding in the form of Graduate Assistantships and Tuition Scholarships.

Questions about the ceramics area can be directed to ceramics faculty member Lindsay Rogers at Questions about the MFA program, in general, can be directed to Graduate Coordinator Travis Graves at Thank you!
