Beginning this fall quarter 2023, Walla Walla University is the first Seventh-day Adventist college to offer degrees in both cybersecurity and game development. These new programs aim to prepare ethical, Christian experts to join these growing fields.
The world of computing is rapidly changing, and WWU is expanding its degree offerings to prepare students for this changing landscape. Cybersecurity majors will gain skills to manage systems and protect them against attacks on privacy and security. Game development majors will be prepared to enter a growing field with evangelistic and education opportunities.
"While we are acutely aware of the negative influences that computer games can have on college students, we believe the industry and students interested in this field would benefit from the solid Christian ethical framework offered by WWU," said Jonathan Duncan, associate vice president of graduate studies and professor of math and computer science.
