Rider is now offering a Bachelor's Degree in Game & Interactive Media Design beginning in the fall semester of 2019. The major is offered by the Fine and Performing Arts department and will be a 120-credit program. Students will learn design, communication, computer science and create projects that they can use to obtain a job in this growing field.
