The bachelor of science programs prepare students
for entry-level positions in the game industry and field of computer animation and visual effects.
Students in the Game Art & Design program start out by studying color theory, drawing, sculpture and other art fundamentals, then take courses in 3D modeling, animation, texture mapping, 3-D character rigging, storytelling, motion and lighting, game prototyping and other aspects of character design and game level design.
The Visual & Game Programming degree combines traditional animation skills with technical skills. After training in the foundations of art and design, students enter into the more technical areas of programming for 3D animation, enabling them to enter the world of shading development, motion capture management and pipeline streamlining. Students learn the essential skills to effectively solve technical problems and bridge between the technical programmer and the creative artist.
The Media Arts & Animation program combines art fundamentals with courses in computer graphics, cinematography, characterization, compositing, sculpture, storyboarding, storytelling, motion graphics and a variety of 2-D and 3-D animation techniques.
