On-campus BFA Degree Requirements

RMCAD’s Game Art curriculum is a merger of technical and artistic coursework that covers the computer, analytical, and technical skills necessary to understand the mechanics of game design. You’ll also be introduced to everything from the different aspects of graphic design to creative and technical writing. This comprehensive approach will inform and inspire your work as a game artist!

* RMCAD offers classes year-round in both on-campus and online delivery formats. At RMCAD, we believe that online learning is an important part of the overall college learning experience. To provide students multiple scheduling options, diverse learning modalities, and experience in the virtual environment, all on-campus students are required to take part in online education.

A game artist’s tools are an imagination and a good grasp of computer technology. You’ll spend a lot of your time working over a laptop or in front of a desktop; a tablet and stylus will become a part of your routine.
