Game Art Major Curriculum

The Game Art major is a visual art program focused on the creation of 2-D and 3-D art and animation for real-time, interactive game media. Through project-based coursework, students hone the artistic, technical, and collaborative skills that will open the doors to a successful career as an artist in a studio environment.

Our Upside-Down Curriculum puts you in Game Art classes beginning in your first semester. That means more time to practice, more time to refine your work, and more time to impress our industry contacts. How's that for a head start in this competitive field?
