Interested Students can choose from five courses of study at the Hochschule der Medien (HdM), where the focus is on games. Depending on their interests, both Bachelor and Master students have the opportunity to deal with technical, design or content aspects of computer game development.
The bachelor’s programme in Media Informatics primarily teaches information technology skills. In the Audiovisual Media course, technical and design aspects of game development are taught, which can be supplemented by economic and media science content.
Students of mobile media are mainly concerned with apps. Games for smartphones and tablets are programmed, usability and design improved and possible business models developed. Courses in the common elective area of the three courses of study are, for example, “Gameplay Programming”, “Mobile Game Design” or “Screenplay Development”.
The master’s programme Audiovisual Media is about the combination of media technology, design and conception. The focus is on content aspects of game development. For this purpose, the programme has established the study focus Interactive Systems/Games.
In the Master Computer Science and Media the focus is more on information technology. Here, too, there is an opportunity for further specialisation: the course of studies offers the focus on Interactive Media, Usability and Games.
