The Game Art & Design bachelor's program offers a broad range of work-ready design and technology competencies focused on career paths in the specialty of game art. Students will acquire a combination of skills in drawing, perspective, 2-D design, and animation. They will study lighting and scene setup, color theory, anatomy and gesture, as well as explore motion maps, characters, level design and rotoscoping. Students will also develop skills in scriptwriting, storyboarding, character animation, programming, networking and Web-based game content production. In this program, students will learn the importance of creating portfolios and reels that reflect their knowledge of the game industry. The bachelor's program in Visual & Game Programming prepares students to become technical artists. Intensely hands-on, this program combines traditional animation skills with technical skills and extends the student's ability to create and operate programs and scripts for 3-D graphics animation. Graduates of the Visual & Game Programming program may find employment in the fields of animation, multimedia and game art and design.
