July 28, 2009 -- Full Sail University (fullsail.edu), an award-winning entertainment media institution near Orlando, FL, is proud to announce the expansion of their Gaming curriculum into a newly developed Game Design Bachelor of Science Online Degree Program.
The new 32-month degree program is based on the core disciplines of the on-campus Game Art and Game Development Bachelor of Science Degree Programs and is designed for students who want to create compelling and inventive experiences for the next generation of games.
With the help of industry professionals and the specialized curriculum, students learn the production process used by top game design studios that helps to hone their skills by studying the building blocks of narrative design, storytelling, character sketching, level design, and the production tools used to translate these ideas to the screen.
Throughout the program, students apply these techniques to projects and learn a practical understanding of taking a game from concept to completion. As a final project, incorporating all the critical and analytical techniques learned in the program, the students must create a complete game prototype.
"Having the opportunity to teach game design online allows students to pursue their passion for gaming from all over the world," said Rob Catto, Course Director Game Development. "Learning from industry professionals prepares students for a creative and competitive career in the gaming industry."
