GAM 520: Game Design Proseminar

Due to COVID-19, Spring in-class sections will be conducted online. Please contact your instructor for more information.

In this foundational seminar course, students are exposed to significant written works that examine the medium of games in historical, cultural, and social contexts. Students analyze and interpret games in classroom discussions and written explorations that reveal the meaning and values of games as cultural artifacts. In doing so, they learn to situate their own critical practice within the history of the medium. PREREQUISITE(S): GAM 420
