SMU Guildhall provides an in-depth master’s degree and graduate certificate in digital game development tailored to students who wish to become actively involved in the game development industry as designers or artists.
In conjunction with the Guildhall, the Division of Art offers students pursuing a B.F.A. degree in art coordination with the art creation and design specializations in game development in the master’s degree program at the Guildhall. This program provides the breadth and rigor of a B.F.A. degree which will develop skills supportive of the in-depth investigation of digital game development fundamentals through the curriculum of the Master of Interactive Technology.
The B.F.A./M.I.T. program is designed to furnish students with significant studio art training and a clear curriculum to prepare them for specialized graduate-level study of art creation, game creation and simulation at SMU Guildhall.
Students apply for admission to the Guildhall in the fall of the senior year. More information about the M.I.T. program is available online at www.smu.edu/guildhall.
