  • Game Design (1-Year Ontario College Graduate Certificate)

    Video games are becoming one of the leading forms of artistic expression in the 21st century. Game development requires a combination of talents, hard work and passion. The Game Design one-year graduate certificate is a rigorous program of study that focuses on the principles and techniques of video game art creation required to break into the industry.

    Students will develop their production and design abilities in management scenarios by learning design documentation, milestone and pipeline scheduling, game design theory and psychology. Taught by faculty with industry experience and mentored by local game industry leaders, students will develop games for commercial, educational and serious purposes.

    Students will have the unique opportunity to develop commercial quality games in a simulated video game studio environment, at times developed with industry partners and game artists and programmers.

    It is anticipated that graduates of the Game Design program will find employment in the game industry. Prior to graduation, each student will have assembled a portfolio/demo of their creative work demonstrating their ability in game design and highlighting their chosen area of specialization.
