Game Design

This exciting new program provides the skills for success in a rapidly advancing field. Student-created games of increasing sophistication stem from studies in art, business, computer science, communication, and graphic design, along with focused inquiries into game design principles and practice. Students can focus in either Creative Media or Technology to position themselves for work as innovative game designers, interactive web developers, digital artists, and in other related fields, either in-house or successfully self-employed.

The program offers a unique blend of both the hard and soft skills that employers prize. Students benefit from a wide range of University resources including the cutting-edge technology of the Draper & Maynard Makerspace, which features state-of-the-industry equipment in a facility comparable to those among leading technical and research institutions. The University’s robotics lab, video production suites, art galleries, computer labs, and other assets combine to offer multiple pathways to explore, experiment, and master essential concepts.

Plymouth State’s Cluster Learning Model prioritizes hands-on, project-based work that is the hallmark of creative team environments. Students make an impact while collaborating with peers from other disciplines and real-world businesses and organizations.
