My degree in BA (Hons) Game Cultures 2:1 was focused on many aspects of computer game production and design from a marketing, humanities and media studies perspective. It covered both the critical academic framework as well as practical skills like 3D modelling, world creation and an introduction to programming and sound design.

The course was multi-disciplinary with many modules being shared with Sonic Media and Film studies students which enabled some interesting collaborations – considering the historical ties of game developers and sound engineers.

Games culture covered both the creative and critical skills in video game design, development, and analysis rooted in a cultural and media studies perspective. Core skills included: 3D modelling & animation, marketing; advertising & media theory, art and sound design, Story design, multidisciplinary group management, basic coding and programming and creative writing.
