I'm currently deciding between Game Design (BFA) or Animation (BFA).
It occurred to me that both of these appear to heavily use animation and the like, so I'm wondering, will a game company hire someone with just an Animation degree, or will a film company hire someone with just a Game Design degree, etc? Or do they always hire based on degree title and not on knowledge?
I also noticed that in just a few hours of researching, Game Design programs seem to range from based only just on the programming aspect, just on the designing part, or somewhere down the middle, sometimes leaning toward one or the other. Would it be better to find a program that teaches both, or one or the other?
