The game program at Michigan State University is the #1 ranked public university for game design by Princeton Review (#7 overall). The program includes an undergraduate major, interdisciplinary minor, and graduate programs, as well as a host of research and development activities.
The Games and Interactive Media major provides our students a shared foundational core with extensive depth of knowledge in several areas related to games and interactivity, including: art, design, programming, and production, as well as the history, social impact, and business of games. Students also gain valuable skills in communicating and collaborating in team-based projects while building a strong portfolio of games. We partner with top game studios around the country to provide an authentic, real-world experience in our coursework. Learning is project-based, resulting in a portfolio of small and large projects that reflects a broad variety of work. Our students consistently produce high quality content and many have received awards for their creations.
Upon graduation, students will be prepared for careers within the interactive media industries, including the game industry. Our alumni work as game designers, technical designers, technical artists, programmers, artists, animators, concept artists, storytelling/narrative writers, and producers/project managers. Alumni work for some of the largest and most respected game companies in the world (EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Rockstar, Blizzard, Bungie, Insomniac, Iron Galaxy, Volition, Sony Santa Monica, and more).
