The Digital Game Design and Development program at LIU Post offers a project-based curriculum that allows students to develop skills in all areas of game development, including game design, computer programing, and visual design. The program focuses heavily on game creation, so during their two years at LIU Post students will work on several solo and group-based projects, giving them a chance to develop a broad range of game development skills. Before graduating, all students are expected to complete a capstone thesis project, which can be used as a portfolio piece in a job application or as a commercial independent project.
According to the Entertainment Software Association, the video game industry is growing at a rate four times as fast as the US economy. Upon graduation, students will be ready for positions in the game industry.
