Virtual Reality (‘VR’) experiences provide an escape from real life—and are increasing in popularity. Our grads talk about their work in virtual reality and their career success in the VR industry.

VR Careers – Living & Working in 3D

“[In school], you learn to use devices and technology. But the thing you have to realize is, they’re all tools. And at the heart of it, you’re an artist.” – Kellie Brewart, 3D Generalist, Magnopus, YEAR Graduate, Bachelor of Science in Media Art & Animation

Ever wonder how artists create eye-popping virtual and augmented reality experiences? Want to break into the VR industry? At The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire, a campus of Argosy University, we can provide students with the tools needed to become a part of the growing VR design world.

It’s a fast-paced and demanding career that requires preparation, dedication, and life-long learning. As VR games and VR experiences become more popular and accessible, demand is increasing for images that push boundaries—and the artists that create them.
