So I was looking at UAT(University of Advanced Technology) online(father and full time job, campus would be difficult). They have both the Game Designer and the Game Art and Animator degrees online. Both these aspects interest me, but I can't put my finger on which would be better overall for me. I would just like to hear my fellow Viner's opinions on the school, degrees, and other various aspects, thanks in advanced!

Could do both? Or rather perhaps, focus on just one and dabble with the other?

I thought about that, but unfortunately I asked UAT, and you can not do two at the same time. You can do one and go back to do another(which is then completely free by the way, pretty cool I thought), but you can't do two at the same time. It sucks.

Although, a Game Designer is just a title, am I right? There are plenty of Game Designers that don't have a Game Design degree. So technically I could get the Art and Animator degree and still obtain the goal of Game Designer. On top of that the Game animator degree is a little more versatile. I could become a tattoo artist(love tattoos, and that degree is all about artwork), you could work making animated movies( since you work with 3D modeling and such), I could be a comic book artist, etc, etc. But I just want to do all my research.

Any reason as to why? Not that I am disputing your statement, just curious as to why that is the way you suggest I go?

@Wis: I mean either one of them is good, but I think animation is a good choice IMO

I agree lol. I'm just having a hard time coming down on either side of the fence.
