Software tools, game engines, favored scripting languages and even business models will evolve between the time you start college and when you graduate. At St. Edward’s, you’ll learn how to be adaptable, so you’re never stuck clinging to one technology or an outdated idea of what consumers want.

You’ll apply what you learn in Austin, the third largest hub of game development in the country, home to small indie developers to such global competitors as Blizzard Entertainment, Electronic 艺术s, BioWare, Cloud Imperium Games, Daybreak Game Company, NCSoft, ZeniMax/Bethesda, Kabam,, Retro Studios, Devolver Digital and Aspyr Media.
