Creativity and computing
The computer science department and the art department at Missouri State University have come together to create courses in computer and video game design. Functional games are created by teams of art and computer science students simulating a professional work experience among team members. Creative animation design and design production skills give students a chance to explore computer and video game design as a possible career. CSC students get credit for collaborative game design projects via CSC 596: Special Readings, a course designed for independent studies.
Technology and biology
The informatics minor is a collaboration between the computer science and biology programs, combining the knowledge of computer science with forensics, including RNA and DNA modeling. Students are able to perform hands-on experiments in scientific laboratories. For more information about informatics, visit the informatics page.
