In Abilene (TX) Christian University”s digital entertainment technology program, students practice a variety of skills while preparing for careers as animators, computer game designers, and app developers.

The interdisciplinary major combines the creative with the computerized, requiring work in art, script development, and writing as well as technological comprehension. Abilene professors provide training in the full process from concept to publishing, with an optional focus on mobile game development.

 “We wanted to become Christian leaders in the digital entertainment industry,” says Brian Burton, assistant professor of information technology.

He says the demand for the program”s students exceeds supply; there are more jobs available than there are graduates!
