BSGD

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE
IN SOFTWARE AND GAME DEVELOPMENT

IF YOU’RE TALENTED, CREATIVE, AND HAVE A PASSION FOR GAMING THAT GOES BEYOND THE OCCASIONAL MINECRAFT BINGE, NEUMONT UNIVERSITY’S BSGD PROGRAM IS FOR YOU.


If you think a love of video games is enough to get by in the demanding world of game development, you’re going to end up disappointed. 

WHO IS THE SOFTWARE AND GAME DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FOR?

For the game enthusiast with the intellectual RAM and creativity to master everything from story boarding, to particle engines (realistic blood splatters), to building life-like enemies.

You'll need a creative edge, an aptitude for physics and math, and an analytical mind because we all know that a truly satisfying head shot requires a symphony of design, interaction, and story.  

FOCUS OF THE SOFTWARE AND GAME DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

In the BSGD program, you'll learn all aspects of game development for PCs and handhelds, including programming, AI, animation, and project management. You'll also take courses that will give you the skills to work in software development in any industry - not just the hyper-competitive game industry. If you want the option to work in either game or software development, then this is the program for you. With courses in Java, .NET, C#, C++, and more, you'll be prepared to tackle any software challenge.
