Kennesaw State University senior Derek Martin was in a windowless classroom on a recent afternoon, having a blast as he stared at a computer screen.
Martin, 22, was playing video games as part of his classwork. More specifically, he was playing video games he created.
His friends, Martin said of his studies, think it’s very cool.
Martin is one of 417 students majoring in the university’s Computer Game Design and Development program. The program had two dozen students when it began in the fall of 2009.
