Required courses in this minor come from Art & Design, Mechanical Engineering, Landscape Design, Computer Science, Entrepreneurship, among others. This minor housed in the College of Engineering.

Game Studies Minor

Requirements: EAR=2015-2016

Supplies students with the theoretical tools to examine critically cultural texts, whether books, films or games. Students learn to examine and analyze these materials in an intelligent way. In recent years, video games have begun to outpace the film, music, and publishing industries in terms of profits as well as cultural impact. As consumption of games explodes, their place in global culture is engaged in a process of continual renegotiation; cutting-­edge intellectual inquiry is taking note of this phenomenon in significant ways. The minor aims to investigate video games and related cultural production more closely, to think carefully about texts designed as entertainment, and the various effects of media on society. Courses in the minor draw from Art & Design, Computer Science, Foreign Languages and Literatures, and Communications.

Advertising Minor


Offered by the Department of Business Administration, The minor in Advertising is designed to give students from any major an increased understanding of the concepts of marketing, economics, mass communication, and public relations, as well as the strategies and tactics of advertising management.
