Senior in HS, can I get some advice? :P
Hey Guys, So I think I'm going to Arizona State University to get my bachelor in education (english professor someday maybe? haha :P) and I was wondering about a "Certificate" Program at ASU. It says its for Game Development and while I know its not enough to land me a level design gig at an actual studio, do you guys think it would give me enough training to start working on a portfolio?
I know there's game design schools out there that could get me better prepared, but they're quite a bit of money and honestly i'm terrified of having my only skillset be video games. What if I can't find a job? Or the industry tanks? I know I may be sounding paranoid, but If that does happen, I got nothing. I hope this made sense, and if you guys could point me in the right direction i'd be very appreciative haha :P
