Subject: Sally Struthers Gaming Degree
Ok, so it's not one of those cheesy tv commercials promising you a college degree through the mail. Actually, according to this article over at Adrenaline Vault, the University of Washington is going to be offering a Certificate Program in Game Development. Aspiring game developrs take note:
For the first time, the University of Washington is offering a Certificate Program in Game Development, designed to prepare computer programmers who know the C++ programming language to enter professional careers in this field. This 12-month evening program is designed to introduce students to the vocabulary, philosophy, and tools necessary to create computer and video games. There is a required classroom sequence of four noncredit courses, where each 30-hour course meets three hours per week for 10 weeks. 36 students are currently enrolled in this first iteration of the program.I just hope the professionals teaching these courses can keep up-to-date, after all, the gaming biz is like everything else, constantly changing and improving.
