Entertainment and serious gaming is a dynamic industry with multiple avenues for creative expression.  The work requires one to be sensitive to artistic trends and style as well as technically savvy.   The Game & Simulation Arts program has at its core a strong traditional foundation where the student is then provided avenues for study in high-end digital 3D graphics.  Students in the BFA program work with students in the BS in Digital Simulation & Game Engineering to produce their final senior capstone project.
