Game Studies combines a critical stance with game-playing experience and balances theoretical with practical approaches. The course builds your knowledge of the history and culture of games, game genres and audiences. You will develop the ability to review and analyse games as well as understanding game design and production. The course covers the nationally recognised Game Study syllabus and is excellent career preparation. Women and mature students are particularly welcome.
