Assurance of Learning: B.S. in Simulation and Game Design
Mission Statement: The mission of the B.S. in Simulation and Game Design program is to prepare students for careers in and related to the videogame and simulation industry by providing them with general and content track-specific instruction in game design, as well as opportunities to apply their learning in hands-on projects to hone career-relevant skills. Students explore games as culturally relevant means of artistic expression and engage with the local and global community. The program continually addresses the needs of an evolving industry through the incorporation of new concepts and technologies in coursework and faculty research.
Program-Level Student Learning Outcomes
Upon graduating from the B.S. in Simulation and Game Design program, students will be able to:
- demonstrate proficiency in the development of games/simulations by engaging in collaborative design using a specialized skill set (i.e., coding, 2D/3D art, audio design, writing)
- develop, communicate and revise design concepts for internal and external audiences through presentations, public materials and feedback
- evaluate and critique the cultural, theoretical, historical, and/or artistic dimensions of games and simulations
- prepare for career work through the creation and development of a portfolio.
