Game Design (Minor)

Department Website

Program Description

Video games are more than digital technology that requires a combination of different technical and creative skills. They are a cultural form which has the potential to educate, entertain, and move us. Video games provide a platform to explore complex topics, communicate ideas, and express truths about ourselves, each other, and the world around us. Through the exploration of games as a creative practice, you will receive an introduction to the core concepts of game design, the critical and historical analysis of games as a cultural form, and the collaborative and interdisciplinary craft of game production and development.
