Date: April 18th 2012


Calling all gamers!!!

York College will offer a new course FALL 2012 called:

FA 479 / MUS 450: ART & SOUND OF VIDEO GAMES (3 crs)

Co-taught by Sarah-Kate Gillespie and Tom Zlabinger

THURSDAYS 2-5 p.m.

We will examine the evolution of the visual and the aural aspects of video games over the years. The course will also include a field trip to Washington DC to visit the video game exhibit at the Smithsonian ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=t-l0Bs3wsgo ).

This would be a great "fun" class to add to a heavy semester. But don't be fooled! We will get deep into the social impact and the ethics of gaming. Papers will be written. Arguments will be had! And yes, we will be playing (ahem, I mean demonstrating) games on a large screen in a smart classroom!!!

THE COURSE IS OPEN TO EVERYONE!!!! And is cross-listed as both a Fine Arts and a Music class.
