The game & interactive design program offers a hands-on, studio-based approach to design, programming, and storytelling.
Graduates of the game & interactive design Bachelor of Science program will possess the skills and technical knowledge base necessary to be proficient and capable in both the design and development of interactive media. They will be well prepared for entry-level positions in the fields of experience (UX) design, application design, web design, data visualization, and interactive entertainment.
