Bachelor of Arts (with Honours) - BA (Hons)
Game Development- Writing
Continue your writing as a game designer and narrative specialist. Previous English qualifications or writing work will give you a good foundation. Create back stories, dialogue, quest texts and story arcs as you learn essential creative writing skills and investigate how these can translate to gaming. You’ll work as a narrative designer in a multi-disciplined development team and contribute as a specialised developer.
You’ll learn how all the specialisms work together, how to work effectively in a team and the role you play in it. The course simulates how the industry operates and its methodologies in a studio environment that is built to mirror a real games development studio.
- Build your own games from day one and can establish your own company in your third year.
- Can change the games industry by making games for new markets and not simply replicating what’s already out there.
- Have the option to change your specialism at any point in your first year.
- Work in a department dedicated to gaming and be surrounded by people working in all aspects of the industry.
- Develop a multi-disciplinary approach, touching on all aspects of game creation, and make completed games.
- Teamwork features heavily to reflect the industry.
- Game making is the primary form of assessment.
- Continuous assessment with no formal examinations.
- Visual, verbal and written assignments.
- Portfolio of project work.
