Please note: This program has been transitioned to the Game Design studio minor for students entering MICA starting Fall 2024 of later. The information presented here is for current students completing the program as a major.

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.

Home to the B.F.A. in Game Design and the collaborative Game Center, the Dolphin Design Center provides students with the materials and tools they need to design and make whatever they can imagine.
