Game Programing Program Description
Frederick Community College has submitted a proposal to offer a new 17-credit hour Lower-Division Certificate in Game Programming within the new proposed A.A.S. in Game and Simulation Development degree.  The degree program is currently being reviewed and circulated   separately from this certificate.  The proposed certificate will prepare students to develop interactive computer games on the Internet, mobile computers and personal computers.  The curriculum targets students who wish to obtain the skills necessary to develop computer games using programming languages such as Java, C++, C# and Python.  Students will become proficient in current programming languages used in developing computer gaming software.  Courses will be delivered in traditional face-to-face, hybrid and online instruction.
