Game and Interactive Media Design

Why choose this major?

Game Design students create compelling interactive experiences. Our students are storytellers, critics, artists, advocates and entrepreneurs. Most students are technologically adept and artistically inclined, but above all else, they enjoy playing, making and modifying games.
