Computer Animation and Game Development (CAGD) curriculum is comprised of 120 units in general education, studio art, communication design, computer science, and computer graphics courses. The program learning outcomes are directly assessed in the CAGD core of ten (10) courses constituting thirty (30) units taken by all CAGD majors.
The ten (10) program learning outcomes are distributed throughout the program in multiple courses. The distribution of the program learning outcomes in the required core curriculum can be seen in CAGD Curriculum Matrix Table. The elements in the program learning outcomes are generally introduced in basic courses, then practiced in more advanced courses and then demonstrated in senior-level courses. Assessment of the program learning outcomes occurs throughout the core curriculum. In more advanced courses the assessment measures learning in that particular course as well the overall selected program outcome.
