Purpose: Prepares students for transfer to a four year game art or design program. After graduation from a transfer institution, students will be eligible for entry level positions in the game industry as artists and designers. It is recommended that students work closely with the game faculty to determine what specific jobs within game art and design are of particular interest, and then identify potential transfer programs that would provide the necessary training to secure an entry level job in that specific area. Students with existing degrees, wishing to focus specifically on developing game skills, or wishing to enter the game industry after completing an associate degree should also check out the Visual Arts Professional Game Development AAS area of concentration, and the Game Development Certificate. Students interested in game programming and game engineering should consider the Computer Science Transfer AS or Internet and Mobile Device Software Development AAS degrees and related certificates.
