Course summary

MA Games Design provides a unique study opportunity rooted in creative development linked across a range of digital and traditional approaches. The course also provides a distinct opportunity to study these disciplines at postgraduate level from a perspective that is not always readily available within the UK.

Our postgraduate Games Design degree is for those individuals who wish to creatively question ‘industry norms’ and develop a personal area of investigation. To this end the course has a strong emphasis on personal exploration which it is hoped will bring together new ideas and theories within accepted common practice.

Assessment strategy and criteria is the result of collaboration between student and staff. Successful completion of the full nine modules leads to the award of MA. However, for students who do not wish to or are unable to complete the full course, there are intermediate exit awards at appropriate stages.

Opportunities

The MA will help further career opportunities within commercial design practice. Graduates will improve their chance of employment in the games industry with their demonstrated enhanced specialism and understanding developed on the course. Graduates will also find themselves strongly placed to develop their own practices and consultancies. You will also gain PGDip and PGCert awards in this course.
