Minimum Minor Hours: 24

The Minor in Games is intended for undergraduate students who have an interest in understanding the academic field of games. The Minor will help students learn fundamental skills and theories applicable to a wide range of areas which include: the development of entertainment software; games-based learning environments; game studies; professional task-training tools; serious games for health; scientific collaboration; and other contexts addressing compelling societal needs.

The proposed Minor will require students to take four prerequisite courses: Survey of Games (EAE 1010), Digital Content Creation (EAE 1050), Assets Pipeline (EAE 3010) and Programming for All 1 (COMP 1010) providing the students with an exposure to games, game arts, game pipeline, and programming. Once completing those classes with a grade of C or better in each, students must take Traditional Game Development (3710), either Alternative Game Development (3720) or Interactive Machinima (3660), and finally two 3000 level electives for a total of 24 credit hours to complete the minor.
