Within one year of graduating, 91% of MCAD alumni are working, pursuing further education, or engaged in military or volunteer service.*

This is no accident—MCAD’s sculpture curriculum gets students focused on their careers early and enables them to successfully transition from student to professional.

Sculpture is one of the oldest art forms that is still practiced today. Sculptors manipulate materials to make forms for private collectors, corporations, public spaces, museums, and galleries. Top artists can use their work to connect with and engage the senses of the public.
