Digital Media Arts College Announces New, Online Degree Program in Mobile Game Design
Digital Media Arts College in Boca Raton, FL has just launched a Bachelor of Science online degree program in Mobile Game Design. As of March 2nd, DMAC will be included as one of just a handful of institutions in the nation to offer this program.
Forecasted as an $82 billion industry by 2017, mobile games already account for 33% of all app downloads and 66% of all app revenue (Forbes.com, Newzoo Quarterly Global Games Market Update). The exponential growth of the industry and popularity has amplified mobile gaming’s impact on global business development. From sports to healthcare, the increasing application of gaming technology in business has surged demand for mobile gaming professionals.
“There’s a continuing need for content and new and innovative ways to make connections with users on mobile devices. These connections may appear on the surface at times to be just games, but those games and similar interactive applications are frequently used for much more. They are used to train and inform, launch and support branding strategies, strengthen and build social and professional communities, and even establish new relationships that allow us to view our world in different ways.” said DMAC Chair of Animation, Dr. Tom Joule. “DMAC’s Bachelor of Science in Mobile Game Design curriculum provides students with an opportunity to explore this burgeoning industry and experiment with the latest digital tools used to create dynamic content for the mobile market. Our small class sizes and boutique approach to education fosters innovation at the individual level and acts as a catalyst to creative team formation within a curriculum that focuses on professional career outcomes.”
The program focuses on developing artistic assets in mobile game design to create an interactive experience for players. Mobile Game Design students will master UI & UX design, 3D animation, scripting and programming languages, as well as graphic design. Students will be able to produce and visually create an interactive entertaining and informative experience for the consumer. Graduates of the program will be prepared to seek entry-level positions in the following careers: user interface and user experience designer, game modeler, texture artist, shader/technical artist, animator, game artist, 2D and 3D artists.
The program cost is $582 per credit hour (127 credits) and is intended to provide a convenient way for students to fulfill federal requirements for a bachelor’s degree in science and prepare for a robust career in a booming industry.
DMAC is now accepting applications for spring term starting March 2nd. In addition to being a convenient option that caters to students' schedules, these online programs are also taught by the same high-quality faculty and feature the same high-caliber digital arts education that all on-campus DMAC students receive. All courses will be taught by DMAC based faculty through Canvas, an easy to use interactive e-learning software. To learn more and apply to the new online Mobile Game Design program click here.
