The Games and Emerging Media program at Marist College is an exciting undergraduate program at a top regional university in New York.
All majors get a strong foundation in programming, art, game design, UI/UX, game writing/storytelling, and the business of games. In addition, you can take courses in the ethics of games, online culture, cybersecurity, data science, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, 3D animation, and other relevant topics. You also take a game studio course, which is set up like a mock game studio. And, you take a capstone course, where you create a professional-level game.
The Games and Emerging Media Program is:
- Interdisciplinary and Flexible
- Innovative and Creative
- Caring and Inclusive
Students at Marist benefit from having a well-rounded curriculum, while also having access to top faculty, facilities, labs, techniques, and tools. Students receive the full college experience–sports, music, theater, extracurricular activities–in a nurturing environment that prepares you for both a career AND a fulfilling life.
