Gone are the days when games were just for kids. Now, making a video game is practically like making a movie. It means that to make your mark in this industry, you’ll need to begin by learning the basics—such as drawing, color, and design, before working on skills such as animation, game design, scriptwriting, storytelling, and 3D modeling. It’s about building the skills to put your imagination to work.

It’s not just a game—it’s an interactive experience. Not to mention an enormous global industry. You can play your part by helping to get games into the production pipeline. It takes creativity and hard work— plus the technical, programming, and problem-solving skills our instructors can teach you.

Modules and Assessment

In this competitive industry, companies are looking for creative people who are passionate about the craft of taking a game from concept to market-ready. The curriculum for Game Art & Design will help you prepare to do just that, as you study:

  • Digital Imaging
  • Life Drawing
  • Drawing & Anatomy
  • 2D Animation
  • Digital Storytelling
  • Character and Object Design
  • 3D Modeling
  • Game Art & Design
  • Texture Mapping
  • 3D Animation
  • Material & Lighting
  • Game Modeling
  • Game Production Pipeline
  • Designing Interior Spaces and Worlds

Studying your BFA Game Art & Design is one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. If you’re still reading, then you must be up to the challenge. And that’s good because you’re also in line for a career where you can feed your passion for gaming—and turn the skills you've honed into a career where you do what you love. Your future starts in our Game Art & Design degree programs, where you can learn what you need to become a key player in the game creation process. Using the same kinds of technology professionals use, you’ll explore what it takes to get games into the production pipeline. And get yourself into a dynamic industry. You’ll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be pushed, challenged, and, above all else, supported by experienced faculty. It’ll put your talent and commitment to the test. But it could also put you in a position to succeed.

The Game Art & Design program begins with a foundational drawing, digital photography, and gameplay in order to create entertaining and engaging games. 3-D Modeling, animating, and lighting techniques will be taught using industry-standard software to create game assets in a computer environment. Using game production techniques, the student will be a part of a production team, create level designs, and produce interactive game prototypes for fully realized projects.
