The Game Development Program is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program at the University of Texas at Austin. The program was jointly developed by the Computer Science Department, College of Fine Arts, and Radio-Television-Film Department, with the aim to produce graduates ready to design, develop, create assets, and provide leadership for the rapidly growing video game industry both in Texas and around the world.
Participating students will individually build their pertinent skills within their respective degree programs, then come together to collaboratively develop 2D and 3D games for mobile, online, and social technology platforms in the program’s culminating experience: the Game Development Capstone.
Working alongside local organizations, such as UT’s EGaDS! and IGDA Austin, and local game studios and industry professionals who are committed to evaluating student portfolios and hiring successful graduates, the Game Development Program is dedicated to graduating creative, scholarly, and talented students in the practices of digital interactive media and game development.
