  • The Game Studio at Champlain College Our Collaborative Approach The Game Studio at Champlain College is a cohort experience that emphasizes teamwork across all the game development disciplines, facilitated by game-industry expert professors. Game Art & Animation, Game Design, Game Programming and Game Production Management majors, along with Business majors specializing in Game Production, work side by side all four years to create original projects. This collaborative atmosphere ensures the learning of essential professional social skills and the mastery of the latest game development expertise. Champlain graduates are ready to jump into any environment and be productive from day one.

    List of Game Majors Game Art & Animation, B.S. Game artists begin with a foundation in traditional media. This includes drawing, painting, visual design and motion design. From these building blocks, students choose many areas in which to specialize: 2-D graphics, animation, concept art, interface design, 3-D modeling, texturing, environments, technical art and character development.

    Game Design, B.S. Game Design requires a broad range of knowledge, from psychology to game engine scripting. Champlain’s curriculum is both broad and deep, to graduate well-rounded designers who are creative problem solvers and technically capable, and who also possess strong communication and leadership skills. Students choose to explore game system design, level design and content design.

    Game Programming, B.S. Game Programming is built on a foundation of math, programming skills and software engineering practices. With this base, students can then explore the sub-systems that add graphics, physics and artificial intelligence into modern game engines. As a result, graduates understand how to engineer games from low-level network protocols and graphics shaders to implementing the latest game engines for high-level solutions to artificial intelligence or game mechanics.

    Game Production Management, B.S. Game Production Management provides students with in-depth experience in project management, including Agile and SCRUM methods, through collaborative integration with the game studio and internships in the field. In addition, our students learn relevant business and communication skills through courses that include marketing, corporate social responsibility, organizational behavior and financial management. This program develops graduates with strong business, project and team management skills, as well as experience in current game development tools, processes and methods.
