4 Areas of Focus Overview The Mobile Gaming master of science degree program enables students to develop advanced project management,, and production skills related to games that are featured on devices such as smartphones, PDAs, tablet computers, and portable media ers. During this 12-month program, students will expand upon previous programming knowledge by developing their own game through a project-based curriculum that is structured around the real-world game cycle. Students will conduct graduate-level gaming research, apply theoretical concepts to game design, explore emerging technologies, and develop their own game. Through realworld learning and a culminating thesis, students will have a firm understanding of game, including the communication and professional skills required for successful game delivery and monetization. Each course will also develop the student s academic research skills, tools, and methodologies as students will learn how to utilize academic research for a variety of contexts and learning activities. Objective Mobile gaming represents a rapidly growing industry with as many challenges as there are opportunities. The goal of the Mobile Gaming master of science degree program is to prepare students to address and overcome these challenges through a project-based curriculum that will enable students to be successful game developers. This goal will be accomplished by providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary for effective and creative game design, production, and delivery. Through project-based learning and guided academic research, the Mobile Gaming master of science degree program curriculum will enable students to master the discipline and apply appropriate knowledge, skills, and abilities to all phases of game.
