Some people see games from the inside out – from the mechanics and levels, to the experiences that make people want to play for hours on end. If you've ever dreamed of becoming a game designer, and are as passionate about the craft as you are about the end creation – you're not alone.
The Game Design bachelor of science program, designed to enhance your ability to work in a game studio environment, is comprised of high-level game design and production courses that will take you deep into the game development pipeline. You’ll cover key industry concepts influencing both systems and level designs that will prepare you to prototype and evaluate your game projects.
Game Mechanics - In this course, students learn how pacing and thematic structures incorporate conflict resolution and generate a plausible challenge and reward system.
Game Balancing ‐ Students learn how to use level-design and gameplay-design fundamentals to create levels that capitalize on the strengths of their own designs while also learning about communicating to the player through a user interface.
