GAME 3050 - Serious Games


3 cr. 3 hr. Offered once per year.

In this course, students learn principles of serious games: games as a means of social engagement pedagogy, learning games, editorial games, games for change, and the overall persuasive and rhetorical possibilities of games. Serious games offer game designers and players the chance to engage with social problems, activism, political processes and even propaganda. Students will playtest a variety of existing examples, then work in teams to design and implement and to complete a serious games project.

Prerequisite(s): GAME 3000
