Express yourself through media in the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Game Art program at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. In Game Art, our media are 2-D and 3-D graphics and immersive and interactive technologies. 


Using the tools of game design and gamification, graduating the  Game Art program from The University of the Arts  you can become a visionary leader in fields as diverse as city planning, medical visualization and virtual tourism.


Games are a synthesis of film, theater, graphics, music, animation and fine art skills. Because The University of the Arts students can minor in more than 30 programs, we mold fine artists capable of

  • multimedia installations in galleries;
  • visualization at the forefront of technology;
  • and the development of innovative, expressive indie games for app stores.
  • That kind of synthesis helped a recent UArts student work on a game that won the Independent Games Festival Award for Best Student Game.
