The master of science degree in game design and development allows students to explore the entertainment technology landscape, along with other related areas of software development. The program has its technical roots in the computing and information science disciplines, while simultaneously covering the breadth of the game development field through course work in topics such as computer graphics design, human-computer interaction, interactive narrative, and game design. The degree is specifically for students whom aspire to careers within the professional games industry or a related field such as simulation, edutainment, or visualization.
This is a two-year, on-campus, cohort-based program in which students are admitted through a portfolio review process. Upon completion of their course work, students form development teams that construct a working game engine and software title as the program capstone experience. This requirement includes both individual and group expectations. The capstone culminates in a private defense before program faculty, as well as a public exhibition. Combined, these requirements provide a unique and comprehensive educational experience for individuals who aspire to a career in the game development industry.
