Master of Arts in Community Arts

Maryland Institute College of Art


The MA in community arts (MACA) is a 39-credit program spanning two summers and one academic year. Administered through MICA's nationally recognized Center for Art Education, the MACA program integrates intensive classroom experiences and coursework with extensive field experience.


MACA students are artists dedicated to the principles and practices of social justice. As part of their yearlong residency, MACA students work with community organizations, leaders and youth to conceive, implement and manage projects and programs that support community building while engaging participants in meaningful art experiences.

Integral to their community arts practice, MACA students create artwork inspired by these experiences, generating new forms of action addressing community life.
