Game Business & Publishing Curriculum 2021–2022

Start building the skills you'll rely on most throughout your career.

Our faculty work closely with alumni and current game industry employers to make sure our curriculum teaches you all the technical and interpersonal skills you'll need—and it all starts in your very first semester.

The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to build four full years of relevant experience through practical coursework, meaningful internships, and opportunities to study abroad (and even intern abroad!). You can opt to declare a minor, further personalizing your education to build precisely the future you envision.
