What Can I Do With This Major?

This page is hosted and maintained by the High Point University Game Design department. We have designed this page for game design students who are curious about industry roles and searching for entry-level positions or internships in the industry. We are continuously adding to this page, so if you have suggestions please direct them to Prof. Heagney at bheagney "AT" highpoint DOT edu. For now, please note the following ways to use this page:
  1. Every "game design" area contains strategies for becoming more immersed in that area. Some of the strategies are directly related to High Point University and may not be relevant to students from other programs.
  2. Every game design role is hyperlinked to a LinkedIn entry-level job search. You must have a LinkedIn account and be logged in for those hyperlinks to work properly.
  3. Every game design role is also hyperlinked to a LinkedIn internship search (currently under construction).
  4. If there are no open positions or internships, LinkedIn will tell you their search yeilded no results. But try again in a week!
