Gaming is bigger than ever right now, with the likes of League of Legends, Fornite, and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft being some of the most popular choices among players.

Are you a true gamer who devotes your spare time to competing against your fellow players? And if so, have you ever thought about turning your passion into a career?

Luckily, you don’t need to spend hours researching how to do this. The answer is waiting for you right here in the city, at LaSalle College Vancouver.

This media arts school was named the #1 game design school in Canada in 2019 by the Princeton Review. In fact, LaSalle College Vancouver has been recognized as one of the top 10 game design schools in North America — and #1 in Canada — every year since the rankings started being published a decade ago.

Here’s why LaSalle College Vancouver is the premier media arts school in Western Canada.

The programs

At LaSalle College Vancouver’s specialized Game Design and VFX school, you can earn a Bachelor’s degree or enrol in one of many unique diploma programs. They offer a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in game programming in addition to diplomas in VFX for film and television, game art and design, visual and game programming, 3D modelling for animation and games, as well as animation art and design.

Why they’re next-level

Being a gamer gives you more options than you think when it comes to pursuing a career.

After studying and training at LaSalle College Vancouver (online or on-campus), you’ll be equipped to work in the gaming or film industry here in Hollywood North or anywhere else in the world.

You could work as a game designer, game programmer, character animator, environment modeler, or even a VFX artist. Also, many LaSalle College Vancouver alumni have gone on to work on major game and movie productions!
