Academic Programs

MIAD's Academic Programs are separated into two categories: Undergraduate degree programs and non-credit programs.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

FIRST-YEAR EXPERIENCE: All freshman and many transfer students take First-Year Experience courses in the Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree program. Foundations courses teach students to try everything, and assume nothing. 

LIBERAL STUDIES: In addition to studio coursework, all MIAD undergraduate students take liberal studies (academic) courses. Liberal Studies at MIAD serves as the bridge between the studio and the world, between the classroom and the community.

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMS:

MINORS: All MIAD studio majors can be taken as a minor. In addition, students may receive a minor in Arts Management, Book Arts, Digital Media Production, Furniture Design, Advertising, Art History, Business, Copywriting, Humanities, Natural Science, Psychology and Writing.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS: MIAD offers many mobility, study abroad, and cross-registration opportunities.

NON-CREDIT PROGRAMS

MIAD also offers evening and weekend, non-credit Continuing Education courses for every skill level, and Creative Educator's Institute focused on educators. In addition, MIAD offers Open Figure Drawing on many Tuesday evenings.

For high school students, MIAD offers Pre-College courses on Saturdays and summer programming.
