Getting in the game

Eastern will be offering a new computer science degree in computer game animation and development this fall. The Spokesman Review's Shawn Vestal wrote a very informative piece on Saturday about the reasons behind the implementation of the program and how EWU sees it impacting the future of its computer science program and, more importantly, the region's economics.

Computer games are more than just computer code, they also integrate visual art and music -- that sets up a great possible synergy between EWU's film and electronic media program, Eastern's music program and the new degree program. The sky's the limit.
