Foundation

All MICA freshmen take the same core courses, offered by the Foundation Department. The curriculum is thoughtfully planned, providing the basis for students defining the importance of art, design and art education to themselves, assisting them in discovering the role of art in their own lives, and facilitating their choices of majors, concentrations and minors.

Foundation, the largest department at MICA, has sustained its long tradition of providing students with a highly structured, rigorous, and supportive environment that assures the necessary skills sets to succeed in their subsequent majors.
