Adobe Creative Cloud Software

To ensure that MICA students have the best resources and tools at their disposal as they develop their artistic practice here at MICA, we've partnered with Adobe Systems to provide MICA students with Adobe's Creative Cloud software package.  With this software, MICA students can familiarize themselves with the software that's used by professionals in several different digital media disciplines.

The following software is included in Adobe's Creative Cloud software package:

  • Photoshop

  • Speedgrade
  • among other programs
