Starting in the Autumn 2017 the University of Limerick is launching a new MSc Game Design & Development.
Led by Brenda Romero as course director, the MSc in Game Design & Development is a two-year program (level 9) which takes place over four semesters. Students are encouraged to use the summer break between years 1 and 2 to expand their game horizons, exploring experimental work and working on independent game projects. You can find a full break down of the core modules at http://www.ulgamedev.com/curriculum/
The course also has an impressive list of national and international people on their advisory board including people from Occulus, Microsoft, Insomniac and of course Romero Games.
Brenda told us that “With modules in Game Balance, System Design and Rapid Prototyping, this program is designed with the game designer or gameplay programmer in mind. I am particularly excited because it’s so much more affordable than similar education in the States, and it makes this field far more accessible. I look forward to welcoming our inaugural cohort of students in the fall.”
Prerequisites are a knowledge of programming and applicants must have a portfolio.
Applications are open until July 1.
