Take your Career to the Next Level

We offer two separate, but coordinated programs in digital simulation and gaming at Shawnee State — one in Game Programming and one in Game Arts. Here, you’ll learn how to play with others, working as a team to make games that look great — and work. You’ll develop the skills you need to create the career path best suited for you. Whichever degree you choose, you’ll have opportunities to work with students in designated design roles through course assignments, multiple Game Jams, and in our Senior Studio.
