Our games and interactivity courses explore the role gaming has in modern society and how it has evolved into a creative, cultural, and sporting phenomenon — worth billions to the global economy.

To help you develop the practical, research, and communication skills required to work in a game lab environment, you'll tackle a range of practical analogue and digital game projects.

We also address the interplay of games and other media types by combining units from our media and communication courses. 

When you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your knowledge to the workplace. Future careers can be found in game and interface design, interactive content creation, rapid prototyping and more.
