MICA students come from all over the country and around the world. Many of them settle in Baltimore after graduation – you'll find MICA alumni working and thriving in every sector of a community that welcomes new and creative ideas.
Ranked fourth among cities with the greatest growth in young-adult populations, Baltimore is affordable, hospitable, and filled with resources. You can find well-lit studio space or incubator spaces if you plan to begin a start-up. Baltimore is also an outstanding launching point for internships, jobs, and freelance opportunities. MICA’s partnerships – with institutions such as Johns Hopkins University or with local corporations like Under Armour – and with art museums and organizations provide exciting real-world opportunities for students and recent graduates.
