    Video games and simulations are a multibillion-dollar industry, and in our bachelor's program you'll gain the hands-on experience and theoretical knowledge necessary to land an exciting and fulfilling career in the field.

    What you'll study:

    • basic game concepts and design
    • the fundamentals of computer programming
    • 3-D modeling and animation
    • usability design
    • the application of simulation to education and other nonentertainment fields
    • design of multiplayer games.

    The coursework can help prepare you for graduate study or a career in information technology and computer science, as well as business and visual design.

    How the program works:

    To enhance your skills in a specific area of specialization, you'll choose from one of four content areas:

    • Technical Art: If you want to build your skill sets with 3-D modeling and animation and with integrating them into game engines, this track prepares you to become a technical artist who works with programmers and artists. The track focuses on higher-level 3-D skills and requires visual artistic talent.
    • Level Design: This area of specialization is ideal for you if you want to improve your scripting and logic in preparation for a career as a level designer, who creates the interactive architecture for segments of a game.

    Through dual capstone seminars, you'll work closely with professionals to test and build games and simulations, and you'll graduate with a portfolio of projects to showcase your skills.
