The Game Design and Project Management programme from Uppsala University  specialises in leading and planning game projects. Former graduates have started their own studios and work at some of the world’s best known game companies.


The Game Design and Project Management programme Game Design and Project Management at Uppsala University provides skills in developing games for commercial production, as well as a deeper understanding of how games work and how they affect us.

The programme mixes practical game development and theoretical courses within game design and a minor subject of your own choice. Throughout the programme we explore theories and methods in game design, game development and game analysis. Game developers need good communicative skills both to communicate with their team and to shape the experience that the game will provide. To reflect this, the programme provides training in expression through text, imagery and games, as well as verbal communication.


One of the programme’s strengths is its well-established contact with the game industry. This is why graduates of the programme make up an especially useful network. Through yearly recurring events, notable individuals from the international game industry, former students and academics are invited to judge student projects and share their experience. 

This provides an excellent opportunity for you to build your own contact network for the career ahead of you.
