Game Design

Bachelor of Science


ome people view the world through a narrative lens. They see not just people but players, not just interactions but building blocks of broader stories. If you've ever dreamed of becoming a game designer, and are as passionate about the craft as you are about the end creation – you're not alone.

The Game Design bachelor of science program, designed to enhance your ability to work in a game studio environment, is comprised of high-level game design and production courses that will take you deep into the game development pipeline. You’ll cover key industry concepts ranging from aesthetics and immersion to usability and game economics – in addition to foundational topics like storytelling and character development.

Project and portfolio courses are threaded throughout the curriculum and are dedicated to providing you with a relevant and comprehensive learning experience. In addition, our Career Development advisors and services will be available for support and assistance throughout your game design career path – not just while you are a student.
