Interactive, Gaming, and Immersive Media Minor

The IGI minor formalizes a pedagogical collaboration between the Frank R. Seaver College of Science & Engineering and the School of Film & Television, combining existing courses that focus on interactive and immersive gaming and worldbuilding together with programming, writing, design and analysis-into a comprehensive program of study. Students benefit by gaining technical and creative experience in a variety of different disciplines, making them attractive to both businesses and graduate schools that favor interdisciplinary experience in modern technologies and media. The minor can also supplement work done by students in various majors across the University interested in formal aspects of IGI in practice, as well as applications of immersive technologies in fields such as medicine, training, entertainment, and therapy, among others.
