MCAD enjoys a diverse student body, with approximately 750 students from 45 states and 15 countries.

International students come to MCAD because we are a highly ranked institution in one of the nation's most creative cities. Here are some of the other reasons students choose to move to Minnesota to attend MCAD:

MCAD strongly values and promotes diversity on campus as it is necessary for developing creative thinking. Diversity allows us to view things—everything from homework assignments to social justice issues—from the perspectives of others.

“I very much enjoy the whole atmosphere, and the professors are really great in the way they teach. Maybe I am just very lucky, but I have a lot of professors that I like a lot.” –Sebastian, Germany
