Graduate Programs at MICA Provide Cutting-edge Approaches to Art & Design

Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA)

For over a decade, MICA has created robust educational programs that balance fine arts with design and electronic arts. This trend continues as the college offers an expanded array of graduate offerings, launching six new and innovative programs in 2011. MICA is also developing additional programs for 2012, including a MPS in Information Visualization, the first professional degree of its kind offered by an art college.


New Graduate Programs at MICA


The MFA in Curatorial Practice, the first such MFA in the country, prepares students to expand the definition of the practice and bring new audiences to visual art through a variety of curatorial projects.


The MFA in Community Arts program allows artists to use their artmaking in support of community development and investigate the relationship of the citizen artist to community building.


MFA in Illustration Practice candidates elevate their artistic and business abilities, blend media within new cultural contexts, and integrate research and critical analysis into their work.


MA in Social Design candidates explore the belief that social change can happen through design by participating in collaborative projects supporting a range of community-defined objectives.


The unique MPS in the Business of Art and Design provides a comprehensive, highly concentrated education in business management specifically for artists, designers, and related professions.


The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Graphic Design offers students an intensive immersion in the practice, preparing them for advancing their careers and applying to competitive MFA programs.


In Development for 2012


The MPS in Information Visualization, the first such program offered by an art college, will allow artists and designers to translate their existing skills to the visualization industry and related fields. The program is designed for artists and designers as well as professionals in fields where the access to and management of large amounts of complex data through visualization is essential—including architecture, urban planning, homeland security, strategic planning, health, social networks and more.
