The Columbus College of Art & Design Game Art & Design major supports students to share and build games created through their own unique perspective. Students learn everything game-making, from introductory coding to playable prototypes. Students develop the game art and game design skills and build the confidence they need to create both digital and physical game-ready assets alongside emerging trends in augmented and virtual technologies. Our program provides access to a diverse community of students and local creators, visiting practitioners, and expert guidance from CCAD faculty across disciplines. Game Art & Design majors learn how to build environments intended for player exploration, storytelling, and immersive gameplay. They are engaged with community game forums and have the opportunity to participate in hackathons, regional game festivals, and expos. In Game Art & Design, students collaborate, connect, create, and play with their peers and those in the game industry.
