Our BA (Hons) Games Design course focuses on giving you a solid understanding of game development, the creative process, and the technical knowledge to realise it.
This degree explores the contemporary gaming industry across a broad range of experiences; from free-to-play puzzlers to the latest console blockbusters, the tabletop gaming industry to virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).
The curriculum will give you practical experience of working in teams, like you would in a games studio on creative and technical platforms. There is also an emphasis on encouraging you to develop as a creative individual and to help you identify where your talents can be used as a game maker.
The open, inclusive and broad-based design skillsets covered in the course includes;
- asset creation
- concept art
- digital development skills
- experience of development engines
- game mechanics
- the production of design documents and specifications
- collaborative team-working
