Video games are more than a 25-billion-dollar industry and one of the fastest growing areas of media. Knowing how to design, analyze and understand video games is important for anyone interested in a career in the video game industry or any industry using interactive media. Your coursework will cover computer programing, video game history, graphic design, game theory, storytelling, animation, and gender and violence studies of video games, as well as completing your own 2D and 3D video games.
