Game Design Minor

The 18-21 hour Game Design minor is only open to Computer Science and Computer Information Systems majors.

Minor Requirements

  1. Students must have a grade point average of 2.50 for all required courses taken in the minor. Students must also earn a C or better in every required course within the minor. Both requirements include courses required for the concentration and courses outside the Department that are required for the minor.
  2. Students minoring in Game Design may not enroll in Interactive Media courses for which a required course is a prerequisite unless they have earned a C or better in the required course.
  3. Students minoring in Game Design and Interactive Media may not apply the same coursework to both minors, with the exception of IM 113.
  4. Students may not minor in both Game Design and Game Production.
