Frosh Admissions

Frosh Admissions banner

Students interested in entering the Art & Design: Games + Playable Media (AGPM) program as frosh can do so as long as they are admitted into UC Santa Cruz.

Incoming frosh do not need to satisfy any programming or art requirements prior to arriving at UCSC.

While frosh may not need to satisfy specific requirements, they are urged to make games — using any materials, from Javascript to cardboard — and carefully study game systems. Developing an arts practice in any medium is also helpful, including drawing, writing, music, sculpture, filmmaking, and others. Finally, deepening your understanding of technology is good preparation, including computer programming, participating in maker groups, or whatever else grabs your interest.
