Video games dominate the entertainment industry. Games – formerly part of a subculture – are now considered the modern “spearhead” of digitalisation: Thus, representatives of traditional industries also seek advice from experienced game developers, who inspire customers with their products and who adapt to the rapid changes that characterise the market with the help of new payment models. This high-turnover industry is experiencing major demand for innovative game ideas from game designers with high-quality training.

The online study programme in Game Design prepares you in theory and in practice for professions in the disciplines of Video Games, Serious Games and Gamification. In the process, you will acquire key expertise in the design principles of game development. This includes a foundation understanding of psychology and storytelling, as well as the methods behind ideas generation and expertise in creative processes. One special focus of this programme is the conception of game content and rule systems. In addition, you will specialise in an area that fits your professional goals and which is in great demand on the job market: the role of Concept Game Designer, Core Game Designer or Analytic Game Designer.
