Students learn in SCC’s state-of-the-
Since 2001, SCC has hosted many of the world's most respected artists using the flameworking process. The College celebrates the featured artists' demonstrations through the Glass Master Series. Visit the SCC YouTube channel to watch all of the videos. Salem Community College offers two associate degree programs at the Samuel H. Jones Glass Education Center:
The Glass Art program introduces a multitude of glassmaking processes for glass art students to discover the techniques that best serve their creative ideas. Students learn mold-making, glass casting, fusing and slumping, hot glassblowing, lampworking, and cold-construction techniques.
The program emphasizes the lineage of glass-art making, while at the same time, glass art students are asked to push the boundaries of the material as they see fit.
The program emphasizes other disciplinary studies through strong two-dimensional and three-dimensional design courses, art history, and portfolio and professional practice development. SCC Glass Art students develop a strong ability to think and speak critically about glass art through critical in-class discussions, and museum and gallery visits. Students are encouraged to participate in exhibition opportunities and activities such as SCC‘s International Flameworking Conference and the SCC Glass Club. Read More Here http://salemcc.edu/
Scientific Glass Technology
The only Associate in Applied Science degree program of its kind in the nation, Scientific Glass Technology (SGT) introduces students to the necessary skills and techniques to construct scientific glass apparatus for university laboratories, industrial research and production. SGT students perform advanced fabrication techniques and assemble functioning apparatus to extract, filter and distill. Students also explore technical drawing processes and CAD. Scientific glassblowers are in high demand and are well paid. Graduates of the SGT program have earned jobs at a variety of employers such as the National Institutes of Health, Yale University, University of Delaware, Chemglass and Procter & Gamble.
