Coolest Video Game Degree Ever from University of Denver

From Cappex recruiting message:

Playing video games is one thing, but making video games is a career. The University of Denver is one of a handful of schools offering a degree in Animation and Game Development. This program is primarily focused on the creation of electronic games. You’ll cover topics including interactive graphics/animation programming, fundamental computer science, game design, studio art, electronic art, narrative storytelling and critical game studies.
DU sits in a residential setting close to downtown Denver. There are six major ski resorts within an hour and a half of DU, and the Light Rail to downtown is free with a student pass. If you like to travel even more, 70 percent of our students study abroad at some point in their college career. Students who maintain a 3.0 GPA, pay no additional cost to study abroad beyond the cost of attending DU. Travel and other related fees are paid by the University. And for those who like to stay close to home, the University of Denver has invested $500 million into new buildings on campus. Students at DU enjoy an average class size of 20 students, and many take advantage of our Dual-Degree programs, where you can earn both your bachelor and master's degrees in five years.
The University of Denver is the perfect balance between a small liberal arts college with manyh of the benefits of a large research-based institution. We invite you to learn more about DU.

  1. Many universities and other colleges are offering classes in video game design and 3d graphics programming. Companies that are targeting the gaming industry are always looking for talented developers and designers.
