In this 2-year program, get the skills to build your dream video game and start your own gaming company.

Through a project-based approach, you’ll become a confident game developer, well-versed in the use of Unity, Unreal Engine, audio, art, user interfaces, narrative, and game mechanics. Start with the fundamentals of game design through creating a tabletop game, then work on 3D action RPGS and asynchronous multiplayer games. In a matter of months, you’ll see your concept art transform into 3D worlds.

You’ll also garner a deep understanding of the video game industry itself. Analyze markets, understand the corporate structure of gaming departments, develop marketing campaigns, and learn about hiring processes. By the end of the program, you’ll understand how to take a game all the way from concept to retail.
