9:44 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

Looking to make a career in game art or design? The Art Institutes International at San Francisco announced on Wednesday that they are offering a four-year Bachelor of Science degree program in Game Art & Design, designed in part with the advice of Apple Computer veterans:

The commercial art and design school is offering its unique new program to bring a new generation of talent to the computer and video game industry. Students in the Game Art & Design program study art fundamentals, 3D modeling, animation, texturing, scripting and other aspects of game level design. Courses include "Storytelling," "3D Character Animation," "3D Modeling," "Life Drawing," "Interface Design for Games" and "Interactive Game Prototyping," as well as a variety of general education courses in mathematics, the social sciences, art history and the humanities....

The program was designed with input from an advisory board of experts in the game and animation fields, including specialists with experience at LucasArts, Sega of America, BioWare, Macromedia, Konami of America, Pixar, Sonique, Terra Lycos, PDI/DreamWorks, Apple and the International Game Developers Association. The San Francisco Bay Area is a natural fit for the program, since it's home to a critical mass of game and interactive entertainment firms, including Electronic Arts, LucasArts, Stormfront Studios, Konami of America, 3DO and many others.

Update: The San Francisco location joins The Art Institute of Los Angeles and The Art Institute of Phoenix in offering this cross-platform program, which is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools. For more information, follow the links below.
