Interactive Design and Game Development Concentration, Information Systems Technology, A.A.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Interactive Design and Game Development concentration provides students with the skills to design and develop computer games, detailed simulations and interactive technologies. Program concentration may be chosen from two separate tracks. Choosing from one of the tracks allows students to specialize in an area that is most beneficial. Course concentration is on game design, virtual modeling, animation, interactive application creation, programming, documentation, structured design principles, problem solving, and business ethics. Classes are conducted in hands-on labs. Credits from both options transfer to the University of Baltimore.This A.A.S. program is a career degree, preparing students for the workforce after graduation. However, students can opt to transfer to a four-year program rather than start a career, but should confer with advisors and transferring institutions for specific requirements.
