Mason Game & Technology Academy
Don't just play games, start creating them! Computer Game Design is one of the fastest growing fields of study that incorporates computer technology, visual arts, and music with creative & critical thinking and problem solving skills. Your adventure begins here! Learn the fundamentals of designing a computer game for your computer or your phone. From there, you can "level up" with creating apps, game modding, game art/animation, and more!
The Computer Game Design Program at Mason is one of the most transformational areas of study in higher education today. Students study both the sciences and the arts, all in a revolving-role team-based, project-based new pedagogical environment. The Computer Game Design Program hosts a BFA undergraduate degree, a future graduate MA degree, several minors with sports management and business, and multiple international exchange partnerships. We also host the only U.S. Serious Game Institute (in partnership with the University of Coventry U.K.), that concentrates on game-related applied research and new innovative game company cultivation.
Congrats to all 2014 Computer Game Design Program Grads!
