Ed’s Answer

Besides degrees, think about skills. If I were to hire you, would I be hiring an artist, a programmer, or someone who just wants to design our games and not necessarily help with the art or programming. Usually designers worked their way up as either artists or programmers. Otherwise it's like my asking to be conductor of the symphony without ever playing a musical instrument.

Hi Jie,


Video Game Design is a very competitive field, and an education is usually needed to break into this field.


Students who are looking to have a career in video game design have the option to attend a few different types of schools. Traditional colleges and universities will often offer several classes pertaining to video game design, for instance, but art or technology institutes may offer more specialized programs in this field. Some student may even opt to enroll in increasingly popular online programs.


A video game designer will usually need to have at least an associate degree in order to secure an entry level position as a video game designer. A bachelor’s degree in a related field, however, is even better.


Aspiring video game designers should consider taking graphic design classes, including animation, along with computer science classes, including computer programming. Some art institutes may even offer video game design degree programs, which combine several artistic design classes with more technical computer courses. There are plenty of online options for those seeking more of a work from home experience.
