The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM (MJCC) Program at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture offers students access to expansive, unparalleled facilities, faculty mentorship and emerging technologies.
Students acquire competency in traditional techniques and cutting-edge technologies from faculty who are practicing artists themselves—in service of designing and making jewelry and objects of beauty and utility. The resources of Temple, a large, public research university, and Philadelphia, a premier center of jewelry making and a home base for exploring museums and galleries, serve as a strong foundation for conceptual exploration in service of advancing their craft. The city and the faculty’s strong professional networks also connect students to internships and other opportunities throughout the regional and national metals and jewelry community.
Tyler MJCC students graduate with a broad base of knowledge, critical thinking skills and the technological proficiency needed for success in the jewelry industry, artistic practice and/or top graduate schools.
