First Year Experience


Are you a student interested in games, interactive art, audio, entertainment or web video? If so, our Media Arts and Game Development (MAGD) Learning Community is the one for you!
Take your first year at UW-Whitewater to learn more about what it takes to be successful in the industry, learn about what your career path might look like, and get involved in one of the most progressive majors on our campus! Get a head start in your major by taking your first core curriculum course in the MAGD major-MAGD 150 (Introduction to MAGD). Students in this Learning Community will live together on the same floor of a residence hall, take courses together for their first year, and have a faculty mentor to support each student through his or her first year.
