What Can You Do with a Degree in Game Design and Development?
The games industry values "T-shaped skills," where a team shares common skills with each person focusing on one area of specialization. Our program positions our students for success by combining a foundation in programming skills with the knowledge of the fundamentals of game design, 3D animation, and digital audio. Game developers earn an average salary in the range of $75,000-$100,000, although actual salary depends on specialization, location, and studio size; additionally, many game developers enjoy freelance work. Students in this concentration can also pursue other fulfilling careers such as a mobile app developer, UX Designer, front-end engineer, software developer, and product manager.
