Game Development, Minor
This minor combines the sound principles of computer application development through computer game development. Game development is a very popular venue in higher education and this minor gives students in other IT-related disciplines the opportunity to explore the ever-growing popularity of game development as an option. The minor allows students to explore gaming through the Marshall University’s Computer and Information Technology department’s computer lab for gaming (Marshall’s Advanced Gaming and Interactive Computing Lab-MAGIC Lab) where students can interact with each other, playing different types of computer games to research latest trends and graphics and discuss gaming, as well as, design and develop their own games as projects for courses required for the minor.
