BYU Game Dev's mission and purpose is to provide resources, education, and opportunities in game design and development to all interested BYU students, regardless of academic discipline. Although BYU offers a few academic programs that can be usefully applied to jobs within the game industry, such as computer science, there isn't really a specific path of instruction for students who are serious about a career in the game industry, especially for students who are majoring in non-technical areas like humanities or communications. Being able to program or animate is only one step to making an excellent video game. Our club exists to fill the gap between the classroom and the industry so that students can actually get to the industry in the first place.
