Game Arts (Concentration)

MICA's concentration in Game Arts gives you the technical and artistic skills necessary to create professional interactive game experiences.

You will make, play, and analyze games as you study the technical, narrative, and artistic underpinnings of the form. Plus, you will develop the ability to create highly compelling interactive environments that can be used across a range of fields - from medicine to museums, education, and entertainment, including the digital and traditional game industries.

Partners in Play

The concentration's range of potential partners includes: the Institute of Play, a New York City-based organization for the research and development of games as teaching tools; MICA's Center for Design Practice; Come Out and Play, an annual international festival for big and experimental games; regional game companies, including Big Huge Games and Firaxis; and the Computer Science Department at Johns Hopkins University's Whiting School of Engineering.

MICA Game Lab

We make games into art and art into games at MICA, as well as make projects, host events, and run the undergraduate Game Design program.
