    The department of media in the school of media and communication offers two game-related programs, one undergraduate and one graduate. The Master of Fine Arts in Video Game Production and Design provides graduates in the theory and practice of video game design and all stages of game production from initial concept, through development to post-production testing and finally the marketing of the end product. The program focuses on developing well rounded game producers who are well versed in all aspects of how a professional videogame is made, equipping them to work on a full range of projects from low-budget independent studio games to large-scale high-budget major game productions. Students will produce professional game design documentation and develop a digital portfolio that includes a game prototype, art and sound assets.

    The Bachelor of Arts in Digital Entertainment and Interactive Arts degree consists of courses that prepare the student for a broad range of positions requiring a background in digital entertainment and interactive design theory, production, and project management. Students learn and apply development theory and practice for creating digital media and choose concentrations that allow for focused studies in the areas of Digital Design and Web Development, Video Game Art and Animation, Video Game Design and Production, and Cinematic Arts. Graduates of the program are in high demand because they possess a combination of skills and knowledge vital to today's workplace.

    This program prepares students for positions in marketing, business, publishing, government, education and training as Web Designer/Developer, Game Designer, Animator, Project Manager, and Multimedia Specialist.
