In order to be responsive to the continuing advances of the creative industries, the University of Texas at Austin announced today the renaming of the Game Development Program to the Game and Mobile Media Applications (GAMMA)Program, effective as of today.
The University of Texas at Austin was recently ranked 17th in AnimationCareerReview.com's "2013 Top 50 Schools in the US for Game Design and Development." UTCS comes in 3rd among all public schools that made the list and is the only Texas university in the top 25.
UTCS partners with industry and other disciplines within the university to enrich the educational experience of our students.
The new Game Development Program is designed to serve undergraduate students in Radio-TV-Film, Fine Arts and Computer Science. Students majoring in these areas will take classes in their discipline, as described below. After gaining that experience, and typically in their senior year at UT, students from these three disciplines will come together in an interdisciplinary Capstone Project class.
