Master State-of-the-Art Technology

Marist provides a distinctive and unique learning environment for all our majors. While you’ll enjoy the close-knit community of a traditional liberal arts college, you’ll also have the opportunity to harness the technological power of a major tech institute. Students of the Games and Emerging Media major gain exclusive access to state-of-the-art computer and game prototyping labs. We also directly involve our students in our Cloud Computing initiatives and our valuable partnership with IBM.

Gain Valuable Hands-on Learning Experience

The Marist learning experience is focused on creating the ideal balance of theory and practice, and the Games degree is no exception. All of your classes will be project-based and involve student and faculty collaboration to create games, apps, websites, prototypes, VR/AR experiences, mobile games, board games, and other design projects. We host frequent workshops, lectures, and Q&As with industry professionals to gain in-depth understanding of the industry. 

Marist is the official location of the annual Hudson Valley Undergraduate Games Conference where students present research presentations as well as game demos. You’ll also be encouraged to participate in Play Innovation Lab, where you’ll have the opportunity to design and research games, as well as help organize and participate in games-related events.
