Collaborate and Expand Your Horizons with Multi-Disciplinary Computer Science Courses
At USCB a growing number of computer science students take media arts and digital humanities courses. By combining technical skills in with creative aesthetics and problem solving, they are well-positioned for careers in a rapidly changing digital landscape.
Recent multi-disciplinary courses available to Computational Science (CSCI) and Information Science and Technology (ISAT) majors include:
- Agile Practices in Video Game Production is a project-based course where students work in a team to create a polished video game prototype. They learn to use principles and practices from software product design and development to bring their game to life. Their projects could be suitable for commercial development and distribution. Many students who take this course have some prior experience in game development (using Java or a similar programming language) or digital art, but it's not a requirement.
Students Create 3D Video Games
Watch Information Science and Technology (ISAT) student Tgaja Johnson explain the game she and other USCB computer science & media arts students created in the Fall 2022 inaugural edition of Agile Practices in Video Game Production (CSCI B409 / ARTS B395), which was co-taught by Dr. Brian Canada (Computer Science) and Prof. Jim Sidletsky (Media Arts):
