WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
Nowadays large games companies often have employees with research expertise working in development teams in order to evaluate player interaction and behaviour patterns and understand long-term effects and economic aspects of their products. In the design and development of games for entertainment, and games which have a primary purpose other than entertainment, there is a demand for game developers who can see and communicate the link between the reality that is portrayed in the game, the level of abstraction in the game, as well as its effects.
The Master’s Programme in Game Design offers you this higher level of scienctific proficiency through its combination of analysis, development and advanced studies. As a game designer, you will during this programme learn the methods and skills that you need to master to achieve desired outcomes.
Game design is a young discipline, and increased numbers of higher education providers, both in Sweden and internationally, are establishing game design as an area of study and research. The Department of Game Design aims to extend its offerings in doctoral studies in the future, either independently or in cooperation with one or more other subjects at the university.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts degree (Master of Arts,120 credits) with game design as the main field of studies.
Bachelor’s degree with in-depth subject study in a main field of study specialising in games or gaming (e.g. game design, game development, game programming, computer and systems science, information technology).
