Graduates work throughout the U.S. and abroad using this specialized skill. 

The Glass Art program focuses on using the material creatively and learning a variety of glass processes. A handful of institutions offer glass art; however, Salem’s program is unique with its intense focus on flameworking, a process others do not address. Graduates transfer to bachelor in fine arts programs, start their own creative glass businesses, work at a variety of art institutions, work as artist assistants and teach.
