Liverpool Announce New Game Design Studies Component

24 January 2019

The University of Liverpool have launched a new undergraduate Game Design Studies component at their School of the Arts. The component, which can be studied as a Minor (25%) or Joint (50%) subject, can be studied in the below combinations and offers a distinctive multidisciplinary provision in the study of interactive audiovisual media.

The School of the Arts offers facilities to support both the theoretical and technical study of game design. These facilities include:

  • games research lab – a dedicated space for students to research video games, featuring several platforms (e.g. Playstation 4 with PSVR, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii), an Alienware Gaming PC, two Mac Workstations, and a diverse library of titles.
  • iMac suites – the workstations in these suites have a range of game-related software, including Unity (game engine), FMOD (middleware for game sound and music), and Blender (modelling and animation).
  • The Electronic Music Research Studio – a fully sound-proofed and treated studio for surround sound mixing, electronic music composition and sound design research.
