Students can pursue a BFA, BA, or Minor in woodworking, but one of the best aspects of teaching at UNH, is that the Introductory class is offered to students from across the university. Some of the most imaginative and finely crafted work has come from students majoring in engineering, outdoor education, history, business, etc. Small group conversations, critiques, and demos set a tone of support, encouragement, and trust. This allows a diverse group of students to find commonality among one another and encourage each other to make better work.
