GAME DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT - B.S. (SUNY CANTON)

SUNY Corning Community College and SUNY Canton offer a 1+3 program in Game Design. Students complete the first year of the program at SUNY CCC. Upon meeting the appropriate academic requirements during their one year at SUNY CCC, students will be accepted into the Game Design and Development bachelor’s degree program at SUNY Canton.

According to GameDesigning.org, recent career growth in game design is due to the influx of new technology, which creates opportunities for game designers to deliver new entertainment. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics categorizes game design under multimedia artists, which has an estimated growth rate of 8 percent over the next few years.

SUNY Canton also has a thriving varsity esports program, which attracts numerous Game Design and Development students. Gamers can tryout to play for one of the college’s six teams, which includes competitive “Overwatch,” “League of Legends” and “Fortnite” among other popular titles.
