AS Computer Science Game Development and Design Option

The program outlined here will prepare students
for transfer to a four-year college to obtain a
Bachelor of Science degree in computer game
design. The curriculum follows the model provided
by the Association of Computing Machinery and the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
Computer Society to assure maximum
transferability.  Upon graduation, students can
expect to transfer to a four-year college with
junior status.  Effective problem solving is
central to good game design and development.  The
software development process (composing and
coordinating components of a program) requires
that students construct algorithms for problem
solving with appropriate documentation.  This
curriculum has been designed to prepare the
student to work as a team and solve complex
computer programming problems.

The department recommends the following minimal
criteria for prospective students in the Computer
Game Development and Design option:
(1) High school diploma or equivalent;
(2) Cumulative high school grade point average of
    C or above;
(3) Ranked in top half of high school graduation
(4) No developmental studies requirement.
