Game Design Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Degree Programs

The Game Design discipline allows creative content creators such as writers, artists, and musicians -to name a few-, to work with programmers and engineers collaboratively by integrating their talents and knowledge in this interactive medium that combines art and technology. 

This multidisciplinary minor will allow students -of different backgrounds- to understand the role of a game designer by coming up with their original ideas and prototyping them collaboratively. 

The minor will also allow students to understand the industry’s ecosystem, and most importantly get the opportunity to represent their own culture and narrative which is yet to be represented properly and sufficiently through this medium. 

By the completion of this minor, the students will discover their potential within the multiple creative roles that are needed in any game design studio. It will also connect them and expose them to a wide range of work opportunities, and key people in the industry.

Based on the availability of space, a limited number of students will be accepted in the Minor.

Minor Requirements (18 Cr.)

Minoring students must complete 6 out of the 7 courses by choosing either DSGN 3235  Animation or CSCE 3103  Object-Oriented Programming.

Some of the courses could double count towards their respected Majors or Minors.
