The Game Design and Development Minor is aimed at those interested in the computer gaming industry and related fields. While offering some programming, the minor focuses mainly on the broader game design process. It provides opportunities to gain practical and creative skills in developing stories, designs and systems as part of a games development team, or in creating small games and game-like, or gamified, applications.
Note: Those looking to gain their programming and computing skills needed to develop complex video games should instead consider the more technically-focused Game Programming minor instead.
In addition to the BSc program general requirements and the specific requirements of the chosen major, a Minor in Game Design and Development involves the completion of 24 credits of core and elective courses.
