Interactive and Game Design

Interactive design has the ability to connect users with the digital world — including web, mobile, and gaming environments.

Incorporating the artistic and technical aspects of interactive media prepares you to work anywhere innovative thinking is required — from game development to marketing agencies.

Through your degree in Interactive and Game Design, you'll learn to create user-centered experiential art. Courses such as Design Fundamentals and Simulation VR will challenge you to solve complex design problems and build interactive spaces and simulations. You'll learn to conceptualize, prototype, and create concepts that shape user experiences, equipping you with the creative and technological skills that are in high demand in today’s rapidly evolving visual communication environment.

A portfolio submission is required for admission into the Interactive and Game Design Program.
