UC Santa Cruz Offers Master’s Degree In Video Gaming
The business of video games is so lucrative and in need of creative minds that the University of California at Santa Cruz is now offering a master’s degree in video gaming at its Silicon Valley extension in Santa Clara.
UC Santa Cruz student Mark Gerow, inventor of his own video game known as ‘Siege Breakers,’ is set to begin the brand-new program this fall at the Santa Clara campus – to earn a master’s in Games and Playable Media.
“It’s a very technically oriented program that requires a lot of hard work … it’s not quite underwater basket weaving,” said Gerow. “It requires a little bit of blood, sweat and tears.”
