Because we believe in the vital role of art in society, we at Maryland Institute College of Art are dedicated to the education of professional artists and designers, and to the development of a collegiate environment conducive to the evolution of art and design. All of the College’s programs reflect our philosophy that students learn best when developing thinking, questioning, and doing skills simultaneously. Our students come from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. Intellectual curiosity, creativity, motivation, and self-discipline are among the attributes we look for in prospective students. Through a course of study at the College, students develop a body of work that reflects their potential for professional achievement. The experience at Maryland Institute College of Art, by including internship programs, as well as other co-curricular and professional development opportunities, offers students a firm base upon which to launch and build a career.
