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. At AACC students will take foundation art courses in design, color, drawing, art history and portfolio development, enroll in general education courses necessary to graduate from a transfer institution, and take introductory game art and design courses.
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 training in those specific areas. Students who wish to enter the game industry after only two years of study at the college level should consider the Game Development A.A.S. degree. Students interested in programming games should consider the Computer Science Transfer Game and Simulation Programming Option A.S. degree.
