At MICA, we explore games from a unique perspective that can only be found at an art and design college. Our program explores the role of play within our culture and questions how games are used to entertain, educate and create meaning.

Students learn to create games from the ground up, building skills in design, programming and prototyping. Students can also concentrate in supporting areas like 3D animation, sound design, graphic design and illustration. And they'll do all of this in a state-of-the-art space with a designated game lab, serving as a nexus of creative ideas and output.
