About this Specialization

38,296 recent views
This specialization is intended for beginning programmers who want to learn how to program Unity games using C#. The first course assumes no programming experience, and throughout the 5 courses in the specialization you'll learn how to program in C# and how to use that C# knowledge to program Unity games. The C# and Unity material in the first 4 courses in the specialization is slightly more comprehensive than the content in the first 2 game programming courses at UCCS. “Unity” is a trademark or registered trademark of Unity Technologies or its affiliates in the U.S. and elsewhere. The courses in this specialization are independent works and are not sponsored by, authorized by, or affiliated with Unity Technologies or its affiliates

  • Yes! To get started, click the course card that interests you and enroll. You can enroll and complete the course to earn a shareable certificate, or you can audit it to view the course materials for free. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. Visit your learner dashboard to track your progress.

  • Yes, Coursera provides financial aid to learners who cannot afford the fee. Apply for it by clicking on the Financial Aid link beneath the "Enroll" button on the left. You'll be prompted to complete an application and will be notified if you are approved. You'll need to complete this step for each course in the Specialization, including the Capstone Project. Learn more.

  • When you enroll in the course, you get access to all of the courses in the Specialization, and you earn a certificate when you complete the work. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free. If you cannot afford the fee, you can apply for financial aid.

  • This course is completely online, so there’s no need to show up to a classroom in person. You can access your lectures, readings and assignments anytime and anywhere via the web or your mobile device.

  • You can complete the specialization 24 weeks if you overlap the last week of a course with the first week of the next course. This should work fine because the last week for those overlapping courses has a very light workload

  • None, the specialization doesn't assume you have any programming or Unity knowledge when you start

  • The specialization is designed for you to take the courses in order because each of the courses builds on the knowledge you should have learned in the previous courses. If you have previous C# programming experience and have already written some small games in Unity, you can probably shuffle the order around, though you should definitely save the Capstone for last.

  • No, the Specialization doesn't get you university credit.

  • You'll be able to program small (by commercial standards) Unity games using C#. Although most of you will certainly need to take more courses and get more experience before you can build commercial-quality games (it takes my UCCS students 4 years to get there), this specialization builds a strong foundation for you to build on.
