The world of video game design is not for those who simply love to play video games. It is a complex science that has become one of the nation’s most popular college majors. VGD combines artistic talent with high mathematics and computer programming ability. The serious designer will look for schools with “industry current” facilities, small classes, high post graduate employment rates and supportive faculty who come from the actual gaming industry.
Why is this Important?
- Direct links to employers who use the major every day
- See if the ACTUAL professional nature of the major interests you – or not!
- Many of these types of companies offer internships in the major
