The Serious Games Master of Science program (SG) is a five-quarter, professionally-oriented degree program. The M.S. in Serious Games targets the development of novel games that have the potential to make high societal impacts, such as learning games, simulation, health-based games, and more. Students in this program will propose their own game ideas and work with subject matter experts to realize and test their creations. The curriculum will expose students to the design and development of games, as well as experimental work needed to establish efficacy of game ideas and test their impact. The program’s curriculum is designed so that all students develop a baseline understanding of the necessary areas: game design, game technology, integrating subject matter expertise, designing and performing efficacy measures, effective teamwork, and career planning — all within the context of the serious games field.
