🕹️ About BFA Game Arts
Our Game Arts program expands the idea of what a game can be: social, physical, experiential, digital, and interactive. We’re a maker’s degree, so we focus more on art and design rather than programming, and our hands-on studios will have you making, playing, and analyzing games. In the process, you’ll consider game design critically and ask yourself, “What do I want my games to do in the world?”
🎮 From audio to analog, visual to virtual
Find your style through different genres and mediums—digital games, escape rooms, tabletop games, extended reality, or something more experimental. Our classes bring social justice and cultural fluency to the forefront, so the game artists of the future center inclusivity like never before. You’ll also gain experience across writing, narrative design, world-building, character creation, and industry-standard tools, which will help you find your place in the gaming industry or function as an independent artist. Recent alum Babak Saadat, for example, created an RPG-style video game set in war-ravaged Japan called Harukaze, which he’s continuing to develop.
