Online Video Game Development Degrees and Careers


Few people can argue how popular video games have become. Aside from providing hours of entertainment, modern computer and video games also introduce enthusiasts to practical uses of computer software and computer information sciences. Among the fastest growing career tracks in the computer industry is game design.

A complete mastery of computer information sciences and computer software is a key component to a successful career in game design. Modern video and computer games are not localized experiences, but wide-ranging adventures in which dozens of individuals can participate simultaneously through the use of networked computers and game platforms. Modern game design requires more than just talent and hours dedicated to mastering video games.

Preparing for a degree in game design should include coursework in mathematics, English, graphic design, illustration, communication and computers. In addition, practical knowledge of information sciences, computer software, graphics, animation, programming, networking and other computer related skills are also highly necessary.
