Are you interested in understanding how to design and build virtual worlds that millions of others can interact with and enjoy? Are you equally compelled by art and technology?

The BA in game development requires a double major, one in game development and one in either digital media studies, electronic media art design or studio art. The degree is designed to allow students to bridge the gap between game programming and art, allowing the broadest range of opportunities throughout the field as developers, designers and artists.

My class experience with collaborative tools and developer resources has put me in a position of expertise, such that despite being the youngest member of our team I am responsible for keeping both of our current projects moving forward on the programming side. Managing time and achieving development goals is going to be critical…but project scoping and task management have been equally fundamental to my success at DU.
