Game Development - Game Creation Career

Program Goals Statement

This program prepares students for entry into the video game industry. It offers those who want to combine a love of games, fun, and competition the opportunity to develop serious computer skills and prepare for a rapidly expanding career field. In the last two semesters of the program, coursework mimics industry development, as students work in teams to propose and develop a game for distribution. This program is for students interested in the overall creation and packaging of games.
