The BA in Games and Game Design prepares you for a career in the game industry, developing your skills in game design and implementation across all platforms — computer and video games, mobile games, and analog games. Games and Game Design majors study and learn about video games and traditional games in a variety of contexts from sociology to platform development. The curriculum examines the business of games, game design ecosystems and principles of gamification, while developing game creation skills. Students work in teams to develop and create games and are encouraged to focus on an area of concentration that aligns with their interests such as animation or mobile games
