Game Art, Minor

The Game Art Minor offers students to become immersed in the study and practice of the visual arts and animation within the game medium. Students are afforded the opportunity to think critically and work collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams to produce art and animation assets that are critical to the success of projects in the game medium.

Working in the interdisciplinary game areas, the program fosters experiential learning opportunities utilizing diverse intersections of skills merging artistic practice, and expression blended with technology.  Students will be immersed in experiences to develop tools to succeed, eagerness to innovate, and skills to become next-generation entrepreneurs in the ever-changing games and media landscape. We offer 6 courses in Game Design, which are open to students of all departments and Colleges across Northeastern University. Through this game design minor students can make games and create portfolio pieces. Students will also be able to apply principles from their own discipline to the game designs they create.
