Welcome to DU’s Game Development Program
The University offers two degrees in Game Development:
- Bachelor of Science in Animation and Game Development
- Bachelor of Art in Animation and Game Development
Both degrees require a computer science foundation commensurate with national computer science degrees but with electives focused game programming and graphics. The Bachelor of Science requires a minor in mathematics and a second minor in Art or Emergent Digital Practices. The Bachelor or Art is balanced to include less computer science and math, and more Art and Design.
The goals of the degree program are to provide a basis for a career in the game or computer science industry, provide a solid basis for graduate study, and to encourage “whole brain thinking’, i.e. the combination of both technical and creative thinking.
