No longer just popular entertainment, games are their own art form.

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 in our culture and questions how games are used to entertain, educate and create meaning.

Program Overview

Working in a team-based, open lab model, students learn to make games from prototype to finished form and are able to focus on individual areas of interest-including game design, narrative, programing, art production, animation, sound, and more-as they work on collaborative projects with a variety of external partners. The curriculum, which expands upon MICA's successful concentration in game arts, reflects the multidisciplinary nature of game development and draws upon the College's renowned faculty in interactive arts, illustration, and animation so that students gain an outstanding technical and conceptual skillset in preparation for a career in game design.
