Odds of Getting In

The odds of getting in are pretty good. There is not a lot of competition out there for this career. It may be difficult to find a class near you. Wannabe blacksmiths may have better luck enrolling in an art school like the American College of Building Arts and majoring in Forged Architectural Ironwork. Other majors at art colleges to consider include Art Metals, Welding Technology, Blacksmithing, and Collage. The Collage degree won’t actually help you become a great blacksmith, but you'll probably bring home a lot of cool stuff.
