Art Institute of Tampa

Miami International University (MIU) has branches at Tampa and Jacksonville which provide students with experience in both academic and practical skills in the creative disciplines (culinary, fashion, media arts, design, and general education). Thus, if students want to gain a graduate degree or enter the industry connected to their studies, they will be academically and practically prepared.

Each degree program is provided on a year-round basis, letting students finish their degrees in
three years if they wish. The faculty at MIU and its branches have academical credentials pertinant
to their respective teaching areas. Also, many of the faculty are working professionals. As well,
degree programs are carefully designed with the support and contributions from leading
professionals from the local community. Curricula are reviewed periodically to ensure that they
meet both the academic needs and those of a changing marketplace.

Students are expected to achieve an understanding of theoretical and practical knowledge relative
to their degree. This is demonstrated through measurable outcomes outlined in each course.
Each degree program is defined so that students complete specific courses and develop
analytical learning abilities as well as with educational values which contribute to lifelong
learning.

The core electives and curriculum in the General Education Department complements the technical
training our students gain and provide the student with broader knowledge and more creative
thought. The course content is designed to provide critical thinking and a support structure for
learning for students in all study programs.

The General Education Department also aims to stimulate the imagination, provoke students'
curiosity, and encourage them to set out on a lifetime of independent learning. The programs
nurture the intellectual and aesthetic maturity of students and instill in them esteem for human
values.

Lastly, the Department takes a holistic approach to learning. It makes connections between all subject matters, their pertinance to historical and cultural contexts, and the professions that lie ahead.
