Why study this course

This degree provides a thorough grounding in software design and development skills. It also includes specialist units in video games as cultural media products. There are two types of these units: those covering practical applications of IT development skills to game development projects and those providing a more critical approach to video games as designs and cultural media products. This combination of technical skills with a critical understanding of video games as media tools is an innovative approach. Graduates of this program will be equipped with the technical knowledge to successfully contribute to games production projects, as well as a deeper understanding of games, enabling them to create truly innovative designs.
