2 College Freshman

Academics: There are not really famous alumni that I know of.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm in a small major, so it's really nice. The professors are great. It's very competitive so the workload can get overwhelming.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I have learned so much at this school.

3 College Senior

Academics: My major is General Fine Arts and it's good because we can take classes in all majors but we don't get priority so it's rare to get into a graphic design fibers or fibers class for some reason. Also the teacher don't really TEACH you how to draw or paint. They just tell you to paint this or draw that and hope you get better by practice. But I have never painted before. I would like some real direction. I could draw or paint a still life on my own for free.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are many famous artists who come out of MICA however I wouldn't go off of how many become famous. Our success rate of jobs that people LOVE are I think 97% which is crazy high. Everyone here works really had and the staff are all WORKING ARTISTS. That is so so so very important. MICA makes teachers hold shows and portfolios every few years to show that are still working and growing as artists. The school is second in the country for their academics. We are a liberal school so you get both studio and academic classes.
