Digital Entertainment Design and Production

Why Choose the Digital Entertainment Design and Production Program?

At the end of the day, regardless of the chosen medium (games or film), the focus of the Digital Entertainment Design and Production program is telling stories. We love good stories, both telling them and listening to them.

This program combines art, computer science and communications and provides students with fundamental skills that apply to careers in the film, game design and digital illustration industries. Probably the best thing about the DED program is that we are all alike.

In this program, it is ok to be a movie nerd and a game geek, because we are all movie nerds and game geeks. We have the opportunity to shape the next generation of movies and games and take the experience of storytelling to a whole new level. 

If you love movies, games or storytelling in general, this program and career path might be the perfect fit.


Explore and discover how production, design and storytelling work in the digital entertainment world.
