The Joseph Meyerhoff Center for Career Development is a one-stop resource for students preparing for the leap into the world of art and design, alumni making a transition in their careers, and employers and institutions that would like to connect with MICA students and alumni. The center serves as a resource and referral center for students and alumni seeking information about employment, postgraduate study, competitions, internships, and other career-related opportunities. Unlike most colleges, MICA alumni have lifetime access to Career Development and its resources.
During the Foundation year, students’ career exploration includes learning about the variety of majors available to them and ultimately choosing a major in their second semester. Students may want to visit the career center during their first year to talk about possible career interests and other opportunities that are available to them including internships and summer jobs. Career Counselors can meet with students in individual meetings and in group sessions to share information related to their specific interests and career goals. Counselors not only help students find employment, but they help them navigate the path of a practicing fine artist, including exhibiting their work and sustaining their art practice with grants and residencies.
