As a Game Design major in the college’s Integrated Media Environment, you will be part of our digital arts student community and take core courses with students from other majors in the Environment. This regular exchange between students with differing perspectives and techniques helps build team skills integral to brainstorming, character design, narrative ideas, production, and presenting and critiquing project outcomes. Moreover, you will be mentored by our extremely talented faculty. Accomplished experts in digital media and game design, they will help you build connections and network with other professionals in the field.
