Are you a part of or interested in the growing culture of game development? Does neural networking, machine learning and game development invoke excitement and curiosity in you? Are you passionate about creating technology to support human and social good?
Our game development minor offers students a multi-disciplinary foundation in game design, drawing, animation and programming. Students will have the opportunity to create a game from scratch, testing both their coding and creative storytelling skills, whether it’s a computer game or phone app.
Quality, not quantity. Our professor-to-student ratio makes certain you have the most hands-on education possible. We offer real world, hands-on paid internships for our students. We participate in the college’s Maple Scholars Summer Research Program, where students take on a special research project and work closely with a professor.We are small, but mighty. Our program embraces human-centered computing, computing for the good of humanity and other ecologies. We have courses in accessibility programming, where we create software and hardware for persons with disabilities. We participate in the Association of Computing Machinery’s Computation Competition every October. Last year our team came in 5th at the site, and 101st in the region, and it was only our second year in the contest.
Women are welcome here! We have a strong female core in computer science and information technology. As a woman, you will have support and enjoy fun activities in our on-campus chapter of Digital Eve. Additionally, we are a member of the National Center for Women in Technology. This organization recognizes and supports women in computer science and information technology through scholarships and other programs. If you are a woman who codes, Goshen College is the place to be!
