Work Hard, Play harder
The Game Design Certificate is a joint program between the Departments of Curriculum & Instruction, Art, and Computer Sciences designed to empower students with the skills, understanding, and background to create and produce games independently, to develop a body of work, and gain critical perspectives on games and game design. The certificate will focus on game design in the general sense: creating, testing, and understanding how to design gameplay to be fun and impactful, across board games, video games, gamification, and even classrooms.
