Ceramics is in a discipline of its own as it encompasses chemistry, industrial technology, world history and geography, physics, architecture, mathematics, as well as principles and elements of art and design. Students learn firing theory of oxidation, reduction, glaze chemistry, oxide reaction of raw chemicals. Students are introduced to ceramics found in career paths such as dentistry, industrial manufacturing, research and technology, and pottery as functional ware.
