  • BA (Hons) Computer Games Arts at UCA Farnham will provide you with a broad range of expertise and skills in digital games and interactive entertainment development. Grounded in the domain of the creative and visual arts, the course will develop your technical skills in digital content creation, with particular emphasis on 2D and 3D modelling and animation targeted at real time rendering environments. It also includes a broad range of general visualisation techniques and contemporary media and cultural studies.

    Concept, context and theory aspects of the course will include general creative arts practice, media studies and contemporary culture, with both strands augmented by a rigorous instruction on digital asset development techniques, including exposure to games development systems and prototyping tools.

    The course is about your individual creativity and about how you can develop your ideas into tangible projects. Throughout the course, you will be working in small groups or individually.

    Alongside the practice, you will engage with debate about visual culture and subject aligned theory. This plays a very important role in providing the bedrock of critical thinking to contextualise practice and conceptual modes of articulation. It provides the voice of reflection defining issues across social agendas to aesthetics of imaging within a virtual environment.

    The games and interactive media industries are hungry for new talent who are not only highly visually creative but also technically savvy. This course is one of a handful in the UK and beyond which can furnish these needs.

    Close to London and the hub of the national culture and media industry, this brand new course will draw on this considerable experience and success to create a uniquely challenging, innovative and diverse opportunity for those of you who wish to work in the games and interactive entertainment industries
