Run since 2004


The Bachelor of Arts (Games and Interactivity) aims to produce highly skilled graduates capable of gaining employment in the growing computer games industry, or indeed the wider multimedia industry. Through a combination of media, multimedia and specialised games subjects, students gain an understanding of how games operate within society, at the same time developing a set of research and communications skills that are applicable across a range of industries. Instruction is through a combination of theoretical and practical teaching modes, which allows students to get hands-on experience with game development within a broader theoretical framework. While this degree would be suitable for anyone with an interest in studying games as a social phenomenon, it is especially well suited to those seeking employment in the games industry, but who do not wish to become high-level programmers.
