Majors & Minors (Undergraduate)

Illustration (Studio Minor)

The Illustration department is distinct from other departments at MICA in that it is not defined by a specific medium.

MICA's Illustration courses provide technical and conceptual preparation that allows the students to become engaged professionals.

In the Illustration studio minor, you will learn to create work that is based on personal vision and an awareness of the shifts in markets and culture. Contemporary illustrators create work mostly for publication (books, magazines, newspapers, web, comics and graphic novels, institutional publications, advertisements, posters and flyers, graphics for music, etc,) and preproduction (concept art and character design for film, video games, animation, and television).
