As a Graphic Design student at MICA, you will explore the commercial, social, public, and political aspects of design as you learn to think conceptually and apply technical skills in all forms of the practice. We see graphic design as a comprehensive activity of visual problem solving for professional leaders working in branding, UI/UX, packaging, spatial design, publication design, and typeface design, among others. Our graduates bring the ability to think and make critically and to thrive as professional designers. The graphic design curriculum at MICA is built around a three-year sequence of core design courses. Required courses in typography, paired with comprehensive studios, will help you build expertise. Theory, technique and history are tied into every course. A broad palette of electives in specialized areas is offered, for students both inside and outside of the major. A senior degree project is required, where you will create an independent body of work. Pre-professional experiences are required for juniors and seniors—providing lessons on career development strategies. These courses draw from the expertise of leading design professionals across the east coast who advise students and support them in their professional development.
