For students who are intent upon a career in game design, but for whom a degree program is not a good fit, certificates can be an excellent solution. Certificates are much more specific than degree programs, and they tend to be more hands-on as well, so they can be excellent tools for professional studies.

What is a certificate in game design? This program is typically designed for students who have a basic familiarity with computing and games but who desire more detailed knowledge about game design, such as level design, storyline development, and more. Often, students select this certificate in order to pursue game design as a career. Often, students work hands-on with equipment such as game engines, HD video equipment, Adobe, and others. Courses typically include game programming, photography, digital filmmaking, and more.

Those who complete a program in game design can often see many benefits to their careers. Many graduates have improved job prospects as they are able to complete more digital and creative tasks. Having some higher education also typically brings higher salary opportunities to prospective employees.

The cost of a certificate in game design can vary greatly from program to program and between geographical locations. For the most accurate information, prospective students should reach out directly to the programs to which they intend to apply.

These certificates can help individuals without degrees in game design or interactive media to obtain entry-level roles in the game industry. A certificate program can also help students with technical backgrounds in computer science or other digital fields to transfer their expertise to the needs of game industry employers. Graduates often go on to become graphic designers, game engineers, story developers, photographers, and game programmers.

Admissions requirements vary widely between programs. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
