SCI-Arc Bachelor of Science in Design03:16

The Bachelor of Science in Design* (BS Design) program at SCI-Arc is a four-year degree preparing students for interdisciplinary creative careers in film, gaming, and data environments, using architecture as a platform for exploration.

This liberal-arts based program is divided into a two-year Foundation Sequence followed by two years where students have the option to focus on Data Environments, Film + Narrative, or Games + Interaction. The foundation includes a distinctive core curriculum built on SCI-Arc's design culture. Liberal Arts classes are accompanied by tailored coursework in Applied Studies, History + Theory, and Visual Studies. The end of the Foundation Sequence introduces the Case Studio: a concentrated studio format where students learn analysis, visualization, and design workflows that connect and integrate objects and phenomena of multiple scales across digital and physical environments. The program culminates with a Final Project that showcases the full range of the individual’s creative and technical capabilities with a view toward their future career path. Graduates will learn to confidently seize the opportunities arising between different fields of emerging technologies, and be well-positioned for employment across multiple industries, entrepreneurial ventures, and academic pathways.

Career opportunities include: game designer, production designer, creative director, concept artist, interaction technologist, asset developer, worldbuilder, narrative designer, urban strategist, data visualization specialist, 3D generalist, and architectural designer.

BS in Design at SCI-Arc is a program where visually sophisticated, spatially informed, and technologically literate designers are forged and empowered to expand diverse cultural horizons and social affordances of tomorrow’s media industries and urban infrastructures.
