Creative Degree Panel
Creative Degree Panel

On April 5, the Counseling and Fine Arts Departments arranged for a panel of 10 professors, representing eight colleges and universities, to speak to students and parents about various art/design degrees available in college and their application in society. Discussions included admissions requirements, career opportunities, and the collaborative nature of the programs, including their link to other disciplines on the campus. The panel covered visual arts, interior design, theater, film, architecture, music, and design (graphic and interactive). These creative professionals will be among the 40 colleges and universities represented at MCA's inaugural college fair from 6-8pm in the Assembly Center tonight.
