Michigan State University offers a carefully crafted three-course, transcriptable, university graduate certificate in serious games. The certificate can be completed either fully online or on campus through hybrid courses, including a mix of in-class lectures and online learning. The program is designed to give game designers, business people, teachers and researchers graduate-level insight into serious game theories, serious game design and development and human-centered design.
Recent coursework has included:
- Foundations of Serious Games
- Theories of Games and Interaction Design
- Understanding Users
Our graduate certificate students include Media and Information graduate students as well as any student enrolled in a MSU graduate degree program. The certificate program is also available to non-MSU students as a stand-alone, 3-course graduate certificate program.
Our online graduate certificate students also include game industry professionals, fortune 500 and small business professionals in many different fields, such as museum designers, corporate trainers, university professors and K-12 teachers with an interest in serious games.
