    Creative Minds | Transforming Society

    Art and design is a growing sector that has a significant impact on our economy. Additionally, people who pursue a degree at a specialized school for art and design are prepared for careers in a wide range of fields. Perhaps most importantly, they are more likely to be working in careers that they find meaningful, while also pursuing their passion outside of their jobs. For all these reasons, we know that art and design degrees at AICAD schools are a great investment.

    Please view our presentation to learn more about how creative minds are transforming our society.
