MICA's First Year Experience has been crafted to provide a rigorous, integrated curriculum that reflects the diversity of our people and our learning pathways. Students are challenged by courses that share a philosophy of learning through making-thinking-exploring-reflecting and honor the needs of individuals to define their relationship to the world as artists and designers. The program assists students as they consider their major options, providing a breadth of experiences while promoting in-depth thinking and skill development.
