Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only

Effective fall 2013, RIT will convert its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.

The game design minor is intended for non-computing majors who want to experience the process and underpinnings of world design and game interaction studies, but are just beginning to explore the technology required to produce computational interactivity. The minor consists of five courses; the first four are required and the fifth course may be chosen from a pre-determined list of electives. Prerequisites may apply, but there are no prerequisites required to begin the sequence, although general familiarity with computing is assumed.
