4 College Sophomore

Academics: The internship and job opportunities in the Communication Design program at MIAD are abundant. It's encouraged that you seek out employment or internship opportunities before you even graduate. The CD program in general is an incredible learning experience and helps create versatility in your work as an artist.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Overall, the academics are satisfactory at MIAD. The professors on campus are usually willing to meet with you for extra guidance/help in regards to your work. The workload is extremely demanding and rigorous, as a student you're constantly working on projects and progressing.

4 College Senior

Academics: Being in a major, any major, is always tough work. It takes a buttload of determination and motivation to get through four/three years of it.

Personally, Interiors, Architecture, and Design (IAD) is one of the best and worst majors ever. It takes soo much work and requires so much of your attention and time. You have to sacrifice a lot of things to get where you want to be, to have a worthwhile career. I despise the workload because out of the entire school IAD requires the most time and classes and credits. It's so much! But I do love it. Nothing you want is easy to work for. And IAD is something I love, very much. I have never not enjoyed designing something. It's stressful, yes, but it's totally worth it.

As a student in IAD you generally have 3 specific teachers who will stick with you throughout your 3 years in their major. They all are very intelligent and competent. Internships are always there, but you need to put in the effort and apply for it yourself to get it. The school doesn't baby you and apply for you, it's a do it yourself kind of thing.

3 College Senior

Academics: Like I said, it's tough being in any major and I can't really speak for other major's workloads in depth. From what I've heard, IAD, ID (Industrial Design), CD (communication design), and Illustration are the busiest majors. Our workloads are a lot heavier than the fine art side of the school. Registration is pretty easy, it was a simple process. Ever single professor at MIAD is always willing to give you feedback or help with something, they will make time for you, even if they don't know you.

4 College Junior

Academics: The Industrial Design Program is one of the most demanding majors in the school. There is so much to learn about the field and so little time, so the workload is quite overwhelming at times. But, if you are dedicated, the work can be quite rewarding.
