Game Design and Development specialization
Transforming ideas into immersive environments
You can be among those who turn dreams into reality, by earning a specialty in Game Design and Development at the IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI as part of your bachelor’s degree in Media Arts and Science.
Game developers have the power to entertain and educate, creating products that transport users to the outer fringes of space … or become tools for better medical diagnosis.
Lots of people have ideas for games. But at IUPUI you’ll learn the skills to take your idea from theory to finished product as you work with other students in business-based groups.
Together you’ll brainstorm, research, program, illustrate, and pitch your concept, whether it’s a board game, mobile game, or video game design.
Sound like a lot of work? It is! But it’s fun and rewarding — and if you love games, this is the work you can be doing.
