Game Design

AAS degree

Which electronic game are you playing now? If you enjoy playing, you might enjoy creating even more. Each game you play began as someone’s idea. Combined with knowledge and grit, that idea came to life as a game you’ve enjoyed.

Students in the Game Design program, create and develop games by working with ideas and sculpting graphical assets.  The successful student will work with storyboards; will then create player avatars, scenes, non-player characters and entire worlds that taken together make an engaging interactive experience.

Graduates of this program will have the beginnings of a portfolio demonstrating their qualifications for employment in many challenging areas, doing work they will come to love. Firms in engineering, medicine, education, entertainment and many other industries require people with these qualifications.
