The University of Montana in Missoula offers an MFA and the ceramics
dept. harbors an anagama kiln, located just out of town.
Also the University of Oregon Ceramics Dept. , Eugene, features a
nborigama and I believe one or two other woodfire kilns. My info is a
few years old on the U of O , but they did offer a very satisfying
variety of kilns and firing methods for the pyro-inclined grad student!

Penn st. has two wood kilns
one designed on the Ruggles and Rankin model
and one large kiln built like a small anagama
it's a great program as long as you can take the obiwan kanobi / darth vader
personality of the head of the department
Jack troy lives about 45 minutes from Penn St. and I think he enjoys having
some of the students around
I think this is a great program to be in

2 year program
they pay for it
you get a stipend to teach
