Taking game ideas from concept to execution is a team effort. Real game industry studios revolve around collaboration, which is why the Champlain Game Studio places students in a workplace setting that replicates the experience they'll have as graduates.
The cohort experience emphasizes teamwork across all the game development disciplines, facilitated by our game-industry expert professors. Game Art*, Game Design, Game Programming, and Game Production Management majors work side by side to create original projects.
As an artist, you'll learn to communicate with designers, programmers, and managers. For instance, you'll come to understand the perspective and language of a programmer (and vice versa) well enough that you can collaborate efficiently. You'll be learning professional social skills as you master the latest game art tools and techniques.
Be ready to jump right into the best jobs with a full understanding of how a professional game studio team functions. You can demonstrate to employers, through your résumé and portfolio, that you've already been doing the work for which they're considering hiring you.
