The school was ranked as the eighth best in the world in 2019 by the SCImago Institution. They offer degrees in architecture, medicine, law, pharmacy, social work, and many more.
Work with Rooster Teeth
After completing her degree in Fine Arts in 2016, she then moved to Los Angeles and started her career as a professional actress, working with the Avalon Artists Group. She was eventually noticed and hired by the company Rooster Teeth, a media and entertainment company founded in 2003. The company began with the production of the series called “Red vs. Blue”, a series still in production, making it the longest running web series of all time. They were among the first to create subscription-based content that allowed them to gain additional income by providing exclusive content to their subscribers.
The company has expanded to create live action shorts, Let’s Play videos, comedy sketches, animated productions, and more. They’ve also produced news programs, podcasts, video game development shows, and reality shows. In 2015, the company released a film entitled “Lazer Team” and they also host the annual convention called RTX. They have a strong presence on YouTube, though they have their own website as well as their own app. Their main YouTube channel has over nine million subscribers, while all of their subsidiaries combined would number their subscribership at over 45 million.
Leaving Rooster Teeth and Current Endeavors
During Mica’s time with the company, she held a position as an editor, and would later gain secondary host duties at the program “Achievement Hunter”, which is based on the achievement mechanic often found in current generation video games. She also worked as an editor of “The Know”, an entertainment program which discusses current movies, games, television shows, technology, and more – the program would later become “Inside Gaming”. She also held the position as the head of streaming for the company. In 2018, she made an announcement through Twitter and the Rooster Teeth journal that she was leaving the company to move back to Los Angeles, as she wanted to explore her acting, modelling, and cosplay career, and since then has only appeared occasionally for the company.
