Game Design, Department Award (D)
The Game Design Online Program is comprised of intensive, instructor led, modular courses that are delivered by experienced production professionals who are currently working in these related industries. The program is intended for students who want to "learn anywhere, anytime" to train for entry level employment in Serious Game and Simulation Design.
The program has been designed to afford students the opportunity to develop the necessary foundation skills, master the tools and processes, and nurture their artistry and creative vision. In this project-based curriculum, students undergo standard production experiences that reflect industry needs and current industry trends. The online curriculum design is based upon industry production pipeline workflow, sequenced from fundamentals, through all essentials, to advanced techniques.
Students develop professional skills in pre-production, storytelling, modeling, rigging, texture art, lighting, character animation, special effects, simulation, technical direction, game design, game prototyping, object oriented programming, render management, production management, and portfolio production.
