Bachelors in Gaming (sort of) at Collins College

April 25th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Collins College offers a Bachelors in Video Game Design. They give some sample courses in the program including Internet Programming for Games, Creative Game Design & Storytelling and – hold on – Creative Level Design! I take it that stands for designing the levels you pass through in a game. So what’s there to learn about levels for a whole semester – I wonder?

The college itself is pretty small – its a school of 2,000 students located in Tempe, Arizona, with an additional campus in northwest Phoenix. As for accredition, I see they are accredited by the “Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology (ACCSCT)”. Like what I said about physical trainers with certifications before, it is easy to make mistakes with or without certifications and things. I would have loved to see sample student outcomes for the game design bachelors program. There are some game design and development links at this gaming directory. How does one get to be a game programmer anyway? Sounds like a really cool job.
