Course content

The MA in Games Design has been created to support students coming from creative or technical backgrounds to learn the essential skills necessary to make games.

It is intended as a course for people with an active interest in making games, who have expertise in related creative or technical field. Whether you have experience in creative writing, music, illustration, or indeed prior game design you will learn to develop and apply your skills to make games.
Our MA Games Design course is for people with an active interest in making games. Making games is technically and creatively demanding, and quite different to appreciating and playing games. If you’ve experience in another creative or technical discipline you understand what kind of engagement and dedication is required.
The Masters is designed to support those wishing to apply their skills to games design, or who simply want the opportunity to continue their studies at postgraduate level and work on more ambitious projects. It is designed for graduates who have completed a degree in a related field and wish to develop their career prospects; or graduates who have completed a degree in a different discipline but now wish to pursue a career in games.
It is also designed for those who already work in a related role and who wish to enhance their effectiveness and confidence in the workplace or to develop their career prospects.
