About the Interactive Media & Games Division

The Interactive Media & Games Division in the USC School of Cinematic Arts is a vibrant community of students and faculty dedicated to providing leadership in the education, creation, study and research of interactive media and digital arts. 

Students emerge as thought leaders, fluent in many forms of media, with the sophistication to design and create innovative experiences that expand the state of interactive art and play.  The multidisciplinary faculty - composed of artists, industry professionals, and researchers - creates digital media scholarship, media art, games, and experiences that integrate and impact the world at large. 

Our faculty practices collaborative design with our students on research projects, utilizing iteration and reflection to engage deeply with important topics that blaze the trail in an unstable evolving and dynamic medium.  Students participate in a process of creative and intellectual discovery while developing design, collaboration and leadership skills, culminating in a focused, in depth, final project.

The Princeton Review has recognized USC as the #1 game design programs in North America for the past three years.

Degree requirements and course descriptions are detailed in the USC Catalogue.
