Video games have become one of the leading forms of artistic expression in the 21st century. Game development requires a combination of talents, hard work and passion. The Game – Art three-year advanced diploma is a rigorous program of study that focuses on the principles and techniques of video game art creation required to break into the industry.

Students will develop both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional artistic abilities by learning concept art, sprite and pixel art, modelling, texturing, animation and level design. Taught by faculty with industry experience and mentored by local game industry leaders, students will develop games for commercial, educational and other purposes.

Students will have the unique opportunity to develop commercial quality games in a simulated video game studio environment, at times working with industry partners and game programmers. In the second year, students choose whether to specialize in game modelling or game animation.

What You’ll Learn

  • Analyze the differences in game genres in order to develop games that meet the needs of specific markets.
  • Analyze the history of video games to compare various approaches to game development.
  • Support the development of games by identifying and relating concepts from a range of industry roles – programming, design and art.
  • Contribute as an individual and a member of a game development team to the effective completion of a game development project.
  • Develop strategies for ongoing personal and professional development to enhance work performance in the games industry.
  • Perform all work in compliance with relevant statutes, regulations, legislation, industry standards and codes of ethics.

Great program. I applied 4 years after graduating from a graphic design program. Application process was straightforward and asked for short video answering what my favourite movie was and why but I think they recently added a video submission, so get your reel together. Since graduating I've worked on sets in Toronto and done freelance ad content for a few different agencies.

I took the IA course as a continuing education course; it could have been so much better. We had to submit group work, group work is rarely very rewarding or "fun." The course was not very well structured. We submitted homework every week for the duration of 6 weeks, no one received a grade or a review on the homework submitted...ever. The final homework assignment was submitted and once again, zero feedback regarding grading or comments on how anyone taking this course could improve? The instructor, Darren was MIA when you emailed him for information, no response to emails. No feedback on our final assignment. Everyone in the group received the same mark regardless of the individual's participation. I would not recommend this course.
