Curriculum

Students in our Advanced Game Design program will develop a portfolio uniquely tailored toward their desired career path in the animation games industry. Our program provides students with specialization skills not typically found prior to entering industry. Students will gain a solid and practical understanding of how to effectively work with specialists in order to realize their project’s development. To this end, students will have the opportunity to collaborate with student artists in other programs to help bring their games to life. Throughout this intense and focused process, students will be given the opportunity to identify and enhance their strengths and interests, which in turn enables them to enter the workforce with a narrowed focus and competitive edge.
