This interdisciplinary Game Design (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool is one of the first of its kind in the Russell Group, combining modules from Computer Science and the School of the Arts to deliver a holistic grounding in how games are made, why they’re made, and what they tell us about the world.
You will develop skills in coding and programming alongside an understanding of creative design principles, through a combination of modules from Architecture, Communication & Media, Computer Science, English, Music, and Philosophy. These individual disciplines are drawn together by a set of bespoke Game Design modules in which you’ll produce work that will form part of your professional portfolio.
Digital games (incorporating computer games, video games, and smart phone apps) represent one of the fastest growing forms of entertainment media. This progamme aims to equip you with the technical, creative and critical skills that will help you find employment in this dynamic and rapidly growing field, whilst assembling a professional portfolio of work.
There is a growing need for jobs not only in the games industry, but in surrounding industries as well. As such, this programme develops a wide range of skills that prepare students for employment at various entry points in the job market, including content creation, publishing, journalism, and marketing.
