The Minneapolis College of Art and Design is a private nonprofit institution that specializes in the visual arts. MCAD has the highest level of accreditation for any art and design school and is one of few schools to offer a major in comic art. The school offers professional certificates as well as bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine arts, design, media, and communications.
The atmosphere is just really huge. People are going out and making art even outside of class, and you're being pushed harder than ever before, and it's just this amazing environment that pushes you to do your best. It's transformed me already.

MCAD is home to a wonderful, tight-knit community of passionate artistic-minded individuals. Every day at MCAD, I feel accepted-- a part of a larger group-- and pushed to my fullest potential as an artist. MCAD will help you become the greatest artist, learner, and person that you can possibly be.
