Associate in Science

 

Game Design and Development

The video game industry has grown and evolved outside the realm of just entertainment. We now see applications in the military, education and healthcare. If you have a passion for gaming and want to be on the forefront of its evolution, our program is for you! Studies include graphic design, interactive design, 3D modeling and game programming. Students will learn the workflows involved in the design and development of a game, as well as creating user interfaces, environments, problem solving and ability to use game engine platforms.

Our Game Design and Development program prepares students for advanced studies or specialization at a 4-year institution. Students who obtain an Associate’s Degree may pursue careers such as, but not limited to, quality assurance testing, junior graphic designer, junior 3D generalist and junior game artist.
