Why you should study Game Design 

A degree brings with it various advantages that can help you in the course of your career. You develop soft skills and abilities such as scientific work, which are important for your professional development and which you could not acquire in an apprenticeship. You can only reach certain positions and thus salary levels with an academic degree. Lifelong learning is also becoming increasingly important for our society and a bachelor's or master's degree simply ensures you better career and promotion opportunities and a successful future.  

Your IU Studies in Game Design 

In our modular Game Design degree programme, you first deal with the basics and methods of user-centric design. This includes basic scientific knowledge in the areas of general psychology, user design, user experience and the design and ergonomics of user interfaces. Then it's on to storytelling and the conception of content and control systems for games and interactive media. The topics of data analytics and IT project management round off your knowledge in the field of game development. 

A look into the future: what you will do after graduation 

You can already determine your future professional focus during your Game Design studies by specialising in areas such as concept, core or analytical Game Design. Not enough yet? Then deepen your knowledge in digital business models, monetisation or data analysis. After completing your Game Design degree, you will become a sought-after game expert. The gaming market is growing fast. Your chances at software development companies or publishing houses are correspondingly good
