A Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies concentration in Game Design and Development enables students to explore the interactive entertainment landscape, along with other related areas of software development and interactive storytelling. The game design sector is growing in Georgia. By some estimates game development and design has a $3 billion economic impact in Georgia, led by companies like Hi-Rez Studios.
This program provides two sequences, one for students who want to code games (and is computationally intensive and specific to the needs of the leading games companies) and another for students more interested in game development as a conceptual practice.
The Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) concentration in Media Entrepreneurship prepares students for entry into a changing media environment with an understanding of business dynamics and opportunities. Given Atlanta’s booming media production scene, and the tremendous role played in the city by visionary media entrepreneurs such as Tyler Perry and Ted Turner, a program of study focused on preparing you to convert your artistic passions into a media or arts start-up may be the perfect way to start your own career.
Working with a program adviser, a student picks courses from a long set of options, combining classes in a core craft (for example, film production, music industries or graphic design) with classes offered by CMII in media and arts entrepreneurship.
