The Bachelor of Arts in Game Design prepares graduates to be modern game designers, capable of working in large teams, communicating and collaborating with other designers, artists, and engineers, and able to create an experience that is greater than the sum of its parts. The field of digital entertainment has moved from an era where designers were self-taught and learned on the job, to one where even entry-level designers are expected to be well-trained with proven design skills, along with an understanding of technology, art, audio, narrative, and psychology. Designing digital entertainment is ultimately about breathing life into every aspect of what would otherwise be lifeless code and static pixels on a screen. Designers must continually place themselves in the heads and hearts of their players, shaping every action, every response, the ebb-and-flow of the game's intensity, and then skillfully blend the mechanical, spatial, narrative, visual, and aural aspects of the entire experience....
