  • Do you love playing video games? Are you curious about how they are made? If so, Anne Arundel Community College’s Game Development program might be a perfect fit. Game Development is a flexible field. You can work for a large AAA game company, or as an independent developer making and publishing your own games. And at AACC, you’ll enjoy small class sizes and one-on-one time with faculty, as well as state-of-the-art software, hardware and labs. You’ll develop skills and experience that can help you jump start your career right now or prepare to transfer to a game program at a four-year institution.

    Learn how to make your own games and gain the skills to become your own game developer. Our amazing faculty will teach you about game design, how to produce 2D and 3D game art, how to work with game engines, and how to publish games for various platforms. You’ll also gain valuable experience through a gaming internship or practicum course where you will work on developing a real game. This A.A.S. is not intended as a transfer degree, but when you finish, you will be well on the way to achieving your gaming career goals.

    Game Development, Visual Arts Professional, Associates of Applied Science Degree

    Obtain a basic understanding of how games are made and what careers are available. In addition, you'll form a solid foundation in art and design, taking courses that are commonly taken in the first two years at a four-year institution. You’ll build a foundational portfolio that you can display during our annual Student Art Portfolio, where more than 20 local, regional and national schools come to meet and review the portfolios of our visual arts and digital design students. When you finish, you’ll be well prepared to transfer to a four-year college or university. In fact, our transfer students are better prepared and more apt to receive scholarship money than many of their four-year peers.
