This means that students will draw upon the expertise of faculty from various departments on campus and will work in collaborative project teams. In addition to the core computer graphics courses, students in the major are required to choose several courses from an interdisciplinary pool from Departments outside of Computer Animation and Game Development (CAGD): Art (ARTS), Media Arts, Design, and Technology (MADT), Computer Science (CSCI), and Journalism & PR (JOUR). The Degree Program also offers minors in Applied Computer Graphics and Video Game Design. The degree program is designed to enable students to develop their skills in a particular area of interest such as computer graphics, computer animation, computer game design and programming, or project management for game development.
