The University offers two degrees in Game Development:

  • Bachelor of Science in Animation and Game Development
  • Bachelor of Art in Animation and Game Development

Both degrees require a computer science foundation commensurate with national computer science degrees but with electives focused on graphics and game programming. The Bachelor of Science requires a minor in mathematics and a second minor in art or digital media. The Bachelor or Art requires a double major in one of Studio Art, Electronic Media Arts Design, or Digital Media Studies.

The goals of the degree program are to provide a basis for a career in the game or computer science industry, provide a solid basis for graduate study, and to encourage “whole brain thinking’, i.e. the combination of both technical and creative thinking.
