The B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology has announced three new specialized masters of science degrees, including a New York state approved degree program in game design. The game design and development master’s degree will accept up to 30 students a year, with applicants required to submit a portfolio. Matriculated students will take a series of core courses in such areas as business, law, electronic entertainment and history of games. Majors will be offered in game engine development and artificial intelligence for games. Students will also declare a minor in either art, design, or an area of computing that relates to gaming. For the past several years, the Golisano College has offered a gaming concentration at the undergraduate and graduate levels for information technology, computer science and software engineering students. The M.S. degree will allow RIT undergraduates to take courses at the upper level and offer graduate students a more in-depth experience. “What sets this master’s degree apart from other gaming programs offered is its focus on the development and process of games in addition to their design,” says Andrew Phelps, director of game design and development in the Golisano College.
