Default Colleges with good arts programs?

I'm looking for a college or university that isn't an art school, but has a good art program (for fine arts/studio arts), preferrably a liberal arts college. Any suggestions?

Could you provide us with more specific information please? That would help us make some suggestions and perhaps narrow down the search.

Which country are you looking to go to university in?

A degree in fine arts will give you a strong foundation in any art-related discipline and you can fill in the games, developing strong skills in your area of your choice, in your free time. So, with a general art course you'd proberbly do quite well.

I think most art degrees fall inside the same category as Computer Science where the more general degree is viewed just as highly as a game specific degree.

Smile Sessions Online School of Game Art

Hey there. While it does not offer degree programs requiring gen ed/liberal arts classes, Sessions Online School of Game Art has a great program online. The faculty looks pretty impressive and are all in the industry. Their sister schools also offer classes in other areas of design-- even Fine Arts. Worth checking out: http://gameart.sessions.edu

Thanks for sharing.

I was just browsing through the site and I couldn't find any information on graduate success rates, besides a few testimonials from hiring managers and students. Approximately what percentage of students on the game art programmes make it to a game art related position in the industry within a year or two?

I also noticed that there was a fine arts department that is involved in the Game Art degree. Is that the specific department running the programme? Glancing through the curriculum, are there any traditional art electives? Or is it only possible to go through the focused accelerated programs that have directly relevent modules?
