This degree programme has been developed in response to the increased demand for trained artists and designers who are able to produce rich, interactive experiences, by developing conceptual visual graphics for digital games. Learners further their skills in drawing and illustration – the basis for the eventual development of game art. Learners acquire grounding in essential art and design principles, as well as computer-generated design, and concurrently receive a basic knowledge of related theory, analysis and practice. This includes game design, psychology of play, user interface (UI), narrative study, digital imaging, 3D-modelling and animation.
