Celebrating its 40th year, the Ceramics Program, known internationally for its leadership in the field, provides a creative studio and laboratory study environment for Harvard students, staff, and faculty, as well as designers, artists, scholars, and scientists from the greater Boston, national and international arenas. The Studio was founded by Harvard College undergraduates in 1969 and became a Radcliffe College Program in 1973. It was integrated into the FAS in 1999 when Harvard and Radcliffe merged. Today Harvard faculty from 10 FAS Departments and 4 other Tubs serve the Program as Advisors. Program core strengths are its excellent courses and instructors, innovative interdisciplinary symposia, and expansive, well-equipped facility. The Program is based at Barry's Corner in Allston, serving as a keystone cultural offering in Harvard's expansion, and also oversees a satellite studio in Quincy House. It offers three semesters each year of courses at all levels, as well as master classes and workshops by visiting artists.
