A UNIQUE M.A. PROGRAM

The Master of Arts in Game Design at IULM University offers a distinctive approach to game design at graduate level, exploring digital games as a cultural and artistic expression, situated at the intersection of art, technology, and design. The Program is open to applicants from all over the world. Students from diverse backgrounds in such disciplines as visual and performing arts, architecture, science, the humanities, design, and engineering are encouraged to apply.


an outstanding FACULTY

The Master of Arts in Game Design provides a context for playful experimentation under the guidance of professional game developers, recognized artists, and influential scholars from all over the world. Students will be able to work with designers from the United States, Canada, Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, and other European countries. Through hands-on learning and auteur-oriented projects, students will develop the skills to develop professional quality video games in one year.


MAKE GAMES THAT MATTER

The Master of Arts in Game Design offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to a game design practice focusing on creativity and innovative thinking. Over the course of the year, students will work individually or in teams to brainstorm, research, design, and develop a digital game which will become their final project to submit at international competitions and festivals, using the latest technology and software: Unity 3D, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects, Unity 3D, Adobe Audition, Blender, Twine, Ink, Processing and more.


LEARN FROM THE VERY BEST

The curriculum encompasses group critiques, technical and critical seminars, independent study, and courses in game design. The Program places a strong emphasis on individual mentoring. Students will be able to experience full-day workshops with some of the most recognized and talented game designers and practitioners in the world. They will be able to develop a professional portfolio of small to medium scale video games that could set them apart. Additionally, selected participants will be involved in planning, organizing, and presenting several game-related events throughout the year at IULM University, including the annual Milan Machinima Festival. 


STUDENTS OWN EVERYTHING THEY MAKE

Everything that students create during the M.A., from art to scripts, from textures to soundtracks, belongs to them. Students can release their games or interactive experiences even before they graduate and keep all the profits. Unlike most game design programs both at graduate and undergraduate levels, at IULM University, students have full control of their intellectual property.


PROFESSIONAL OUTCOMES

Graduates will acquire all the skills needed to work in the video game industry and develop games. Whether they will decide to become independent creators, join an existing studio, launch their own company or become multimedia artists, critics or curators, they will master the essential production and direction skills.
