The Digital Game Design and Development program at LIU Post offers a project-based curriculum that allows students to develop skills in all areas of game development, including game design, computer programing, and visual design. The program focuses heavily on game creation. During their time at LIU Post students work on several solo and group-based projects, giving them a chance to develop a broad range of game creation skills. Before graduating, students complete a capstone thesis project that can be used as a portfolio piece on a job application or as an independent commercial project.
This rigorous program prepares students for a career in the game industry as well as other related industries. LIU Post’s proximity to New York City’s vibrant commercial and artistic communities provides students with opportunities to interact with key figures in the game industry and helps them develop career opportunities.
