The digital (video, computer, etc.) game industry is predicted to be the fastest-growing form of media over the next few years, and already generates more revenue than the music industry and film box-office receipts. Texas has the second largest concentration of game studios in the U.S., and as mobile, online, and social platforms improve, more and more opportunities will arise. With Austin having more game studios than the rest of the state combined, there is a need for a world-class game program centered in Central Texas.
To fill this need, Computer Science, Fine Arts, and Radio-Television-Film, have jointly developed an interdisciplinary program in game development. The University of Texas at Austin consistently ranks in the top 10 in the Departments of Computer Science and Radio-Television-Film, and has an award winning College of Fine Arts. The strength of these three academic organizations ensures that the UT's Game and Mobile Media Applications (GAMMA) Program is world-class. Industry support comes from Chaotic Moon, EA, Jobs2Careers, Multimedia Games, Scopely, and many other studios.
