Study International News, an Independent news site focused on international students studying in the US, recently wrote an article about the relevancy of Virtual Reality in today’s society.


SI News explains, “According to TechHQ, VR isn’t just for gamers: ‘Although VR is transforming the gaming landscape, the technology also has possibilities outside of this space. Enterprise VR is a quietly successful segment of this emerging industry that perhaps doesn’t get the attention it so rightly deserves.’”


It’s a short article that quickly explains the growing tech that is finding its way into a range of business verticals such as marketing, sales, education and you guessed it -- gaming. The job market continues to grow in this space as the technology progresses rapidly, which is why SI News begins the article on UAT’s Bachelor of Arts degree in Virtual Reality.

“To remain in sync with digital demands, many universities have upgraded course selections with a range of contemporary, technological degrees,” SI News said.


“One university that’s doing just that is the University of Advancing Technology in Arizona. Through its Bachelor of Arts degree in Virtual Reality, students are transforming the standards of gaming technology and practices.”


The VR program at UAT applies the design principles of gaming to serious, life-changing applications in such fields as corporate training, medical and therapeutic, military and education. This highly technical field of serious games requires the specialized education that UAT’s virtual reality development degree provides.
