Visual & Game ProgrammingDegree Programs

I want to bring ideas to life.

There’s a market for creative minds who have the talent and tenacity it takes to breathe life into the ideas behind video game levels, characters, and stories. Those who succeed in this competitive field are able to combine a programmer’s skills and an artist’s vision to take on both creative and technical challenges. If you think you’re ready to test yourself in that market, our Visual & Game Programming degree program is the place to start. Using industry-driven programming tools, you’ll enhance the skills you already have and develop the ones you’ll need to spark imaginations...and start a career where you do what you love. From start to finish, you’ll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be pushed, challenged, and, above all else, supported by experienced faculty*. It’ll be intense. Demanding. All-consuming. And totally worth it.

I want to make a name for myself. And earn a living.

It’s not easy combining art and design skills with technical know-how. Our rigorous, intensely hands-on Visual & Game Programming School blends traditional animation skills with the technical skills required to create three-dimensional graphics animation. You’ll work with classmates on team projects as you study everything from Interactive Experience Design to Programming for Visual Simulations.
