Game Design is a highly interdisciplinary field drawing from a number of diverse areas such as art, writing, sound design, sociology, anthropology, computer technology, and programming.

The computer is the primary tool of expression in the program; however, emphasis is placed on the development of creative thinking as well as art and design skills. Students should expect to use and develop skills with scripting tools to program interactive functionality.   more

Game Programming students explore and analyze professional game engines, scripting languages, graphics, networks, physics, and other components of game development. Most coursework takes place in a studio using regularly updated professional-quality hardware and software on PC computer platforms.

Moreover, in their last year of study, Game Programming students collaborate with students from the Game Design program to produce a full, playable video game.   more
