The University of Texas at Austin has launched a new, rich gaming curriculum for the 2020 academic year, entitled the University of Texas Game Development and Design Program. The program is a partnership between the Department of Arts and Entertainment Technologies (AET), the Department of Computer Science (CS), and the Department of Radio-Television-Film (RTF) and is intended for undergraduates with career interests in the gaming industry.
Newly offered classes focused specifically on game design are offered by AET, coursework in coding for games and visualization are offered by CS, and courses offered by RTF center on narrative design, cinematic arts, and emergent media. Under this joint endeavor, complementary minor programs and concentrations will be exclusively offered by all three departments to provide a broad and comprehensive curriculum that blends instruction in computer science, media, and design.
