Undergraduate studio concentrations at MICA allow you to expand the focus of your studies, or enhance your possibilities for creative expression through exploration in depth of media, disciplines, technology, and approaches to art-making beyond your major.
You work closely with a concentration advisor-generally the department chair-to select courses and pursue a coherent program of study. You use the open studio electives included in your major degree plan to complete a studio concentration (requirements for concentrations range from 15-18 credits), so a studio concentration does not add to the total number of credits required for the BFA.
A studio concentration may be incorporated into any MICA major, and students majoring in art history are strongly encouraged to pursue a studio concentration. You may select a concentration to explore in depth an area closely related to your major (an interactive media concentration for a graphic design major) or to branch out into a different medium (a painting major with a video concentration).
