In MICA’s Game Design program you will explore games as a creative practice that can entertain, educate, and create social change. Working in a team-based, open lab model, students learn to make games from prototype to finished form and are able to focus on individual areas of interest-including game design, narrative, programing, art production, animation, sound, and more-as they work on collaborative projects with a variety of external partners. The curriculum, which expands upon MICA's successful concentration in game arts, reflects the multidisciplinary nature of game development and draws upon the College's renowned faculty in interactive arts, illustration, and animation so that students gain an outstanding technical and conceptual skillset in preparation for a career in game design.
