Program Description

This concentration focuses on the production cycle of games. In addition to the core courses in game design, students learn project management, technical writing, and budgeting. In addition, they take at least one basic course to provide literacy in programming, art, sound, and narrative to better communicate with the teams that they will serve and gain an understanding of the production timeline. Students will also be in a position to pursue a career in tech or nonprofit sector as a project manager or program manager, and will have enough semester hours to qualify to sit for the CAPM® exam.

Featured Course Descriptions

PROM 210 - Project Management

Students learn to plan, organize, lead, and evaluate projects "large and small" to ensure that requirements are delivered on time and within budget. Topics include the essentials of initiating a project, defining requirements, scheduling tasks, managing scope, working in cross-functional teams, communicating effectively, resolving conflict, and closing a project. While budget development is beyond the scope of this course, students will be expected to understand simple project budgets. In addition to traditional task lists and timelines, students must generate project charters, change notices, progress reports, and project closing documents.

BUS 461 - Information Systems Project Management

The aim of this course is to provide you with an understanding of the principles, processes, and practices associated with the management of software-intensive projects. The course is ideal for anyone who needs to gain a working knowledge of the application domain, project management, and software engineering.
