Hello! I'm going to be an illustration major at MCA. Can I be a game designer as well? What classes should I take to prepare myself?

Sure. You can also be a cave man, if you’d like.
MCA doesn’t have a specific game design track, although the illustration department has produced alumni who have went on to work in the games industry.
Note: I am currently no longer teaching at MCA, and the illustration department will go through a lot of (very good) changes in the Fall 13 semester. I would direct all questions regarding curriculum to staff through the MCA website.
My personal advice: draw as much as possible and take as many courses as you can where you are drawing a lot.
