What classes do I need?!

Recommended Posts

Im currently a justice studies major at Georgia Southern and just finished my first year. I will hopefully be out in a little under 4 years and hopefully into a military position for something a bit more action oriented. Law enforcement is my true passion in life but on a side note I have always loved video games and always planned on being a designer with a friend but of course things change. Now my question is if I want to at least have a broad look into video game design/development what classes should I take to get me decently started? Any and all information regarding this would help me out alot.

Well I read some of the links you put up and I would be leading more torwards the designer portion of it. I took a programming class last semmester and got lost after the first 3 weeks. My studying habits still arent the best though but I made 100's on the first 2 projects that were due but then she lost me within that 3rd week. I was thinking of trying it again if I had some extra time but we will see.
