Study Games for Learning
Our unique master’s program examines game design from social, cultural, cognitive, and affective perspectives.
Digital games are fast becoming a part of professional education and training—in education, medicine, business, and entertainment.
In the field of educational game design, rapid changes in technology are reshaping the ways we create, evaluate, reflect, reason, and learn. And the interdisciplinary nature of game design has led to innovations in teaching and learning, creating opportunities to collaborate with industry.
Some of our required and suggested courses relate to the design of educational technology and games that target learning—often called educational games.
Game development requires the ability to apply knowledge about play and learning to game design, and enough programming knowledge to communicate effectively with development teams about design goals and specifications.
Our game development courses complement required courses to teach instructional theory as well as programming knowledge appropriate to designing and developing educational games.
