The Mission of MAGD Media Arts Game Development program is to deliver effective and relevant interdisciplinary curriculum responsive to the growing needs of the rapidly changing, evolving, and emerging time-based and interactive media disciplines and professions.

The Program
The Media Arts and Game Development program provides exciting academic and technical training curricular opportunities for students. Students develop theoretical knowledge and targeted workflow skills required to enter professional practice or additional academic study. Building awareness of contemporary media developments and emerging media through criticism and application, students pursue conceptual creative problem solving through written and visual ideation for media. By strengthening student analytical, planning, programming, and creative production-related practical skills through its courses, the program seeks to meet the portfolio development and dynamic team requirements needed for students to become knowledgeable practitioners, prepared to enter employment or advanced education, post graduation.

Core Study and Specialty Selection:
Students begin with an interdisciplinary core class sequence as an introduction to the industry and its professional requirements, and after a series of core classes, students choose to pursue specialization in Visual Media Design, Digital Communication Development or Interactive Technology. Students individually prepare and develop their unique skill sets choosing course sequencing relative to their strengths and career goals. Individualized problem resolution, group and team project structures encourage both unique aesthetic approaches to media problems and interdisciplinary, large-project, team-based solutions.
