    MA in Critical Craft Studies Events

    What can the MA in Critical Craft Studies help you do to understand and communicate craft histories? Join us at one of our events to learn more!

    The MA in Critical Craft Studies is a low-residency graduate program in craft history and theory. This full-time, four-semester/five-residency program is the first of its kind in the US.

    The program is designed for you to be able to continue to live and work from home while pursuing graduate education. We believe that you should be able to extend your own knowledge and critical thinking skills without uprooting your life.

    Visit to access information about the program, and to learn about the students, faculty, and projects including our student-led publications produced by the Class of 2020 and 2021.

    Information sessions will include a short presentation about the program, and plenty of time for your questions and conversations with participating faculty and students. We will share other ways for you to learn more, including drop-in visits to our Residency sessions, the application process, and how our students are shaping an exciting new field of craft studies!

    While we wish we could meet with you in person and on-site in North Carolina, circumstances right now prevent that. So for January 2022, we hope you will be able to join us instead, for a Virtual 2022 Winter Residency visit on Sunday, January 9th, Sunday, January 16th, and Tuesday, January 18th! You can click the link below to find out more information on our Virtual Residency visit and to learn which faculty and what courses you have a chance to join. 

    Join Program Director Namita Wiggers, Director of Admissions Nathan Wyrick, and Program Coordinator Jessie Shires at one of our events to learn more!
