We don’t want to waste a single moment of our students’ time at DigiPen, so our academic degree programs are structured as an intensive series of courses and projects. This means incoming students enter their chosen program from the very first day they set foot on campus. As a prospective student, you may be wondering which degree is right for you. That’s what the Degree Program Deep Dive Series is for.

Each session of this interactive online event gives you an in-depth look at our approach to education presented by the faculty, staff, and students who know it best. Find out what each degree program’s application process is like, the types of projects its students produce, the careers it could prepare you for, and more. You’ll also have a chance to ask any questions you have about the program in real time.

If you know what program interests you already, a Deep Dive session is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the experience. If you’re still undecided, you can attend as many sessions as you need to understand what each program offers. Reserve your seat at as many sessions as you want below and join us online at the appropriate day(s) and time(s).

As a DigiPen student, you could soon be participating in designing and producing several major projects such as working video games, animated films, and more.
