M.A. in Digital Game Design and Development
The Digital Game Design & Development Program at LIU Post offers a project-based curriculum that allows students to focus on developing skills in computer programming, art/graphics or interface/content development while collaborating with others in the cohort on large-scale team projects. In addition to game development, the program stresses the following elements essential to success in the industry: storyboarding, paper prototyping, usability testing, and project management. Students will be taught how to write grant proposals and approach venture capital to support their work and encouraged to collaborate with business faculty on marketing and disseminating their thesis projects.
