Return to: USC Roski School of Art and Design
This interdisciplinary minor integrates three major disciplines (fine arts, computer science and interactive media) to develop the 2-D visual skills necessary to conceptualize and illustrate images for games. Skills include figure drawing, perspective, camera angles, point of view, story boarding, character development and illustration techniques. Software programs such as Illustrator, InDesign and Flash will be utilized in basic interface and interactive design assignments. Although game genres include 3-D examples, this minor will focus on the 2-D graphics for 2-D games and 3-D interface design. The minor includes fine arts courses as well as game design, game technology, production pipelines and play testing courses in computer science and interactive media. A minimum of 24-26 units is required for this minor.
