Game Design Program
Create a world of your own and invite others to play along! Learn the ropes of game design in an environment that will challenge you to power up your creativity and open doors to strengths you didn’t know you had.
Villa Maria’s new game design program is currently enrolling students who want to begin classes in August 2019. This program is the only one of its kind in Buffalo and will prepare you for a lucrative career in the video game field. Villa’s small class sizes means you’ll be part of a group of focused and driven students who share your goals, and that you’ll have nearly uninterrupted access to all the resources needed for academic success and personal growth. Our award-winning faculty will guide you as you learn what it takes to make a video game from start to finish.
