The Art Institute of California announced their new bachelor's degree program in Visual & Game Programming, "designed to prepare the next generation of Technical Artists for the video game and animation industries." Here's a clip from the press release:

"After intensive training in the foundations of art and design, students in the program enter into the more technical areas of programming for 3-D animation. Students learn the essential skills to effectively solve technical problems and play the indispensable role of bridging between the technical programmer and the creative artist. With an advantage of having their artistic talent combined with the knowledge and skills of programming for 3-D development, shading, motion capture, and animation, the students of this program will have an edge in finding a wide range of employment opportunities in the entertainment and game production industries. The curriculum helps train students for entry-level positions that may include Technical Artist, Technical Developer, Assistant Technical Director, 3-D Tools Programmer, Artist Wizard, Data Wrangler, Rendering Wrangler or Junior Technical Cinematic Artist."
