At Clark University, the Bachelor of Arts in Interactive Media Design — with concentrations in Game Design, Game Development & Programming, Game Production & Management, Game Arts, and Game Audio — is a groundbreaking, nationally ranked interactive media program that will allow you to pursue your passion for games while preparing you for a career in the $160 billion interactive media industry.


You may have started gaming for the fun of it — to compete in ways that you can’t in the real world, to make new friends, and to explore crazy, new, virtual worlds. But video games are not just for entertainment. 

The same technology and design process that goes into making games is found in simulations used for education and training; the apps people use to shop, order food, manage healthcare, plan for retirement — and even to sign into a banking account on a phone or use an ATM at the grocery store.
