[+]

The Bachelor of Arts in Game Design concentrates on the visual and narrative aspects of game design. The first year of the program focuses primarily on developing fundamental knowledge and skills in drawing, color, tone, composition, and animation, in addition to mathematics, and computer science. Students learn how to design, model, and texture both 2D and 3D art assets, from individual characters to entire levels. As students progress, they put their skills to the test in real-world, collaborative projects where they design, prototype and iterate their own fully playable 2D and 3D games.

The field of digital entertainment has moved from an era where designers were self-taught and learned on the job, to one where even entry-level designers are expected to be well-trained with proven design skills, along with an understanding of technology, art, audio, narrative, and psychology. Designing digital entertainment is ultimately about breathing life into every aspect of what would otherwise be lifeless code and static pixels on a screen. Designers must continually place themselves in the heads and hearts of their players, shaping every action, every response, the ebb-and-flow of the game’s intensity, and then skillfully blend the mechanical, spatial, narrative, visual, and aural aspects of the entire experience. This degree program prepares graduates to be a modern game designer, capable of working in large teams, communicating and collaborating with other designers, artists, and engineers, and able to create an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts....

Studios seek artists with a broad and integrated foundation of theoretical, practical, and technical skills in production animation, traditional art, modern computer software, and media story flow.
