According to the Dallas Business Journal
, the University of Texas at Dallas will soon begin offering three degree programs in arts and technology, some with a focus on game development.
The programs will be a collaboration between the School of Arts and Humanities and UTD’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.
According to School of Arts and Humanities Dean Dennis Kratz, “UTD’s interdisciplinary arts and technology tracks will include a course foundation in such areas as contemporary art, writing, design, game development, animation, computer science and photography, and will offer classes for students wishing to teach in the field or wanting to pursue careers outside of games and entertainment in such areas as the military or medicine, among others.”
