Our mission is to empower you to become a Unity creator and achieve your career or side-project goals. To help guide your self-learning, we’re releasing the new Creative Core Pathway, free on Unity Learn.
Pathways are free guided learning experiences, designed to help you expand your knowledge and elevate your Unity proficiency.
These structured programs take self-studying to the next level with step-by-step tutorials, advice from Unity creators, quizzes, and building interactive applications. Pathways are your entry points into the world of real-time 3D creation, with Unity.
Creative Core is the latest addition to our lineup of Pathways, designed to be taken after completing Essentials and either before or after Junior Programmer. This Pathway covers a wide range of fundamental topics and is perfect for anyone looking to advance their creative Unity skill set. It’s your chance to begin building the core creative skills you need to produce your first interactive experience.
The Pathway is split into four key pillars: art, audio, foundations, and creator skills. These pillars cover a range of topics to help you develop a comprehensive understanding of the Unity platform.
“The use of real-time rendering 3D software is growing exponentially, with demand for these skills increasing 601% faster than the job market overall.” – Burning Glass
Our Pathways are guided learning experiences that support anyone interested in coding and breaking into the gaming and tech industries.
New to Unity? This guided learning journey is the first step towards gaining the skills you need to confidently create with Unity. In just two weeks, this Pathway will equip you with a strong foundation you can use to further your learning and specialize in your area of interest.
Unity Essentials guides you through setting up the Unity Editor for the first time before covering essential features and navigation. You’ll learn to create and manipulate GameObjects, implement basic physics, and finally create and share your very first build. This Pathway also includes vital information on preparing for a job in real-time 3D.
Ready to code? This 12-week Pathway is designed for anyone interested in learning to code or obtaining an entry-level Unity role. With Unity Essentials as a foundation, Junior Programmer prepares you for certification so you can demonstrate your job readiness.
While Creative Core teaches you the more creative side of real-time 3D development with Unity, Junior Programmer sets the foundation for you to grow into a specialization in your area of interest, such as gameplay, graphics, AR/VR programming and much more.
Each Pathway includes assignments to put your new skills into practice and share your work with others.
“With Unity, anyone can make a game that grows into something larger, and you can start doing it even if you’re not a full-time game developer. You can start doing it while you’re working on school. You can start doing it while you’re working a full-time job. We’re two guys – I’m studying, he’s working a full-time job, and we’re still about to release a game that’s made in our spare time.” – Tim van het Kaar, Co-founder, EpicHouse Studios
The Creative Core Pathway covers the essential creative skills you need to bring any vision to life with Unity. It’s live now – start creating today.
