Becker College has been called “a destination for game designers” by U.S.News and World Report. Becker College has been consistently ranked by The Princeton Review for the past four years as a top undergraduate school to study game design; our game design and game development and programming majors are among the most innovative and best in the nation.
The video game industry represents $52.5 billion in worldwide sales, and expects to reach $86.8 billion by 2014. This rapid growth has created a high demand for well-trained interactive media designers, who create visual graphics that allow user participation on a variety of electronic media—websites, games, cell phone applications, and more. Modern video games have also transitioned beyond entertainment into a wide array of other intersecting industries, leading to employment at companies developing health care, education, and training software.
In addition, Becker College is home to the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI), a statewide institute representing a strong partnership between the digital games industry, academia, and the public sector. Massachusetts represents the fourth largest video game industry cluster in the U.S., which presents tremendous employment opportunities for Becker College graduates. Community internships for Becker College video game development students provide valuable portfolio experience. To date, Becker College student-created games are in use by the UMass Medical School-City of Worcester Mobile Safety Street Bus, Old Sturbridge Village, the Danforth Museum, and others.
Students choose from two interactive media design program concentrations: game development and programming or game design. Game development and programming focuses on the technical aspects of game development, while the game design concentration focuses on the scheme of the project. Students use the most industry-current technology, including a high-performance computer lab, a six-camera video motion capture system, a full range of 3D design software, and more.
