BS Cybersecurity (STEM)

The BS in Cybersecurity prepares students to evaluate and manage an organization's computer, information and network security, as well as develop a solid information technology infrastructure.

BS Data Science (STEM)

The BS in Data Science is designed to meet the growing demand for data scientists or data analysts who can manage and analyze structured and unstructured data sets and extract meaningful knowledge to inform decisions. Students learn about data processing and application development, machine learning and statistical modeling techniques, and the analytical and communication skills to explain results in a meaningful way.

BA Film and Television

The BA in Film & Television provides students with a generalist approach to film and television production. The program covers the primary media in which directors, cinematographers, documentarians, editors, producers, production designers, screenwriters, sound designers, and visual effects artists work.

BFA Film and Television

The BFA in Film & Television provides students the ability to specialize in a specific area of film and television production by choosing one of 10 concentrations: cinematography, comedy, creative producing, directing, documentary, editing, production design, screenwriting, sound design, and visual effects.

BS Game Design

The BS in Game Design program equips students to become the next generation of creative leaders in the growing field of games. Throughout the program students explore and push the boundaries of games as expressive and artistic media. They will develop skills for each phase of the game design and development cycle including ideation, iteration through the creation of multiple playable game builds (including prototypes), and reflection on the effectiveness of their designs using playtesting and written evaluations.

BS Game Programming (STEM)

The BS in Game Programming engages students in the rigorous study of computer science basics, and teaches them to apply this knowledge to the demanding specialization of game programming. Programmers bring their technical understanding of game internals to the problem of delivering engaging game experiences to players. Areas of study include level design, game scripting, computer graphics development, game physics, and artificial intelligence programming.

BFA Graphic Design

The BFA in Graphic Design allows students to engage with both theory and practice, and develop skills to research, concept, prototype, design and document their work. Graphic design integrates a range of media and technologies—from web, interaction, and coding to typography, illustration, branding, and packaging—to communicate to diverse audiences.

BFA Industrial Design

The BFA in Industrial Design (ID) will appeal to hands-on, tangible learners who will complete the program with a significant portfolio that reflects their potential. Studio format courses cover specific materials, processes, and fabrication techniques.

BS Information Systems (STEM)
