|Field of Study:||Computer Programming/Programmer, General
Game and Interactive Media Design
|Description:||Video games are an increasingly important part of contemporary life and entertainment. The new GAME program prepares students to lead in the creation of games — from the programming that makes a game work to the design and realization of dynamic experiences and the planning and management of production processes.
GAME is offered concurrently at Brock and Niagara College. The program provides opportunities to explore the game space from every angle. You’ll gain a broad understanding of this complex field as you look at game programming, multiple game engines, game platforms, and various design ad production paradigms. You’ll also examine core issues that surround games such as play, agency, narrative, dynamics, and immersion. Intensive production courses are offered in Years Two, Three, and Four of the program. In these courses, you’ll work on collaborative teams to create game components, prototypes and ultimately produce fully realized games.
