Major: Game Design and Production Degree Awarded: Bachelor of Science (BS) Calendar Type: Quarter Total Credit Hours: 186.0 Co-op Options: One Co-op (Four years) Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code: 36.0113 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code: 15-1131 About the Program Drexel's top-ten nationally-ranked Game Design & Production program combines a strong comprehension of animation and interactivity with an understanding of design, programming, production, and team work. The major mirrors a sector that has seen an explosion in gaming, not just in personal entertainment, but throughout multiple industries and the corporate world. The gaming industry has matured into a source of large-budget AAA and smaller indie entertainment projects. It encompasses the use of serious gaming, where gaming technologies are used in education and training for practically any topic. Fully immersive games use constantly evolving methods of presentation and interaction, such as personal data-trackers, Internet-of-Things (IoT), multi-touch displays, mediated-reality (augmented and virtual) motion and gesture capture, motion simulation, and haptic devices. To best prepare for the demands of careers in these rapidly changing disciplines, students pursue a foundation of design and technology, taking core courses in all aspects of digital media, completing a six-month co-op and delving into rigorous specialty coursework. Provided a robust foundation, students are prepared to adapt to shifting industry demands and maintain a fluency across the digital media spectrum. To complement the creative focus of the Game Design & Production major, a minor in Computer Science is popular, and in many cases an ideal supplement for Game Design & Production students. This minor increases programming knowledge while maintaining a creative design and production focus. This minor would be easy to achieve within a plan of study using free electives. For the computer-engineering-focused, a sister concentration in game programming and development is offered as part of Drexel's major in computer science .
