Video game design programs have a curriculum that combines training in multimedia design with communications and business. Students take classes in data structures, game programming, narrative writing, and 3-D animation. Bachelor's programs are good preparation for employment with game companies, film studios, and software developers. Master's programs in game design may be more computer science focused, or they may be fine arts degrees that focus on studio work. Graduates of both programs leave with completed game design projects that can be helpful for landing a job.
