The MA Games Enterprise is an innovative course that will give you the opportunity to develop artistic, design, technical, production and enterprise skills. It builds upon the existing successful teaching at undergraduate degree level within this subject area that has produced award-winning game developers, SMEs, artists, and designers.
The Games Enterprise masters is aimed at those who wish to expand their existing skills and develop their practise within an environment that functions as a small development company, but who also wishes to tailor their learning to their own specialism. Using proven industry simulation techniques and collaborative practices, this course emulates team-based activity as used within the industry.
As part of becoming a video game making master, you will develop several game projects that have robust documentation, detailed business strategy and, of course, a game to be proud of.
In 2020, the Games courses at USW have been ranked amongst the top 20 Game Design & Development Schools in the world by the International CG organisation „The Rookies” (formerly The CG Student Awards), who have also officially accredited the University of South Wales as a Certified School.
