The Game Design undergraduate certificate provides students with a fundamental understanding of the structure and rules of gameplay. The curriculum spans the study of logic, functions, and algorithms. Applying this foundation in reasoning and organization, students will then explore various game design tools and applications to enhance their craft. The study of game design theory, documentation, playtesting, and programming fundamentals in C# is followed by a game project. In this project, students will develop a C# application that showcases their grasp of structure and play. This certificate will prime students to recognize the metrics of popular games and will provide them with a C# programming background for testing their design ideas.
