Overview

What’s the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Game Art program at UArts about? 

  • We seek to develop thinkers who can express themselves through media. In Game Art, our media are 2D and 3D graphics and immersive and interactive technologies.
  • We use the tools of game design and gamification to develop visionary leaders in fields as diverse as city planning, medical visualization and Virtual Tourism.
  • UArts is the perfect place to develop the Game Artist of the future. Games are a synthesis of film, theater, graphics, music, animation, and fine art skills. We can leverage the other competencies developed in our university’s 140-year history to create the Renaissance Artist for the world of new media.
  • We mold fine artists capable of multimedia installations in galleries, visualization at the forefront of technology, or developing unique, expressive indie games for the app store. The possibilities are limitless.
