COD Game Curriculum

The Game Animation and Design degree that gives students the skills to design video and computer games across multiple platforms. This degree will provide the knowledge for students to gain entry-level positions as a designer and animator in such fields as game development and design, broadcast design, and television effects. The degree is a collaborative effort between the Computer Information System and Animation programs at College of DuPage.

Tony Venezia, Professor of Motion Picture/Television and Animation, said Illinois is the sixth highest state in the nation for game development. More than 49 game development companies and 48 animation companies are located in the Chicago region, as well as one of the fastest-growing independent game development markets in the country.

"This is a unique degree because we are combining classic animation techniques with video game skills and integrating animation into two- and three-dimensional programming," he said. "It's exciting to bring these areas together because of the tremendous potential for student success in the workplace."

There are also Associate in Applied Science degrees in Game Programming and Development and Game Design and Development.

Students should consult the online Class Schedule for courses under Computer Information Systems.
