BA (Hons) Games Design

BA (Hons) Games Design is rooted in the holistic design of games and the creation of small scale viable games products and related interactive digital artefacts, from concept art to casual games, table top board and card games, through to fully realised “persistent virtual worlds”.

Creativity and imagination are at the heart of this programme that sees the educational convergence of both the Arts and STEM.

Alongside traditional design skills, drawing, ideation; the use of 2D and 3D visualisation tools; contextual and theoretical study including the psychology of “play”, you will also be exposed to broader transferrable skills such as group working, research skills and professional practice.

You’ll complete your BA (Hons) Games Design with the portfolio and up to date professional skills you need to succeed in the industry after graduation. This is because your modules combine tutor-led skill and knowledge development, industry-oriented product creation and self-initiated exploration and reflection. We offer real opportunities to work on projects proposed by industry, whilst students regularly partner with staff in research based projects that are publicly showcased.
