After completing a bachelor’s degree program, students may continue their education in an online master’s degree program. This graduate-level option allows students to focus on advanced studies in a specific topic area while taking courses online.

What is an online Master in Game Design? This cutting-edge degree program teaches students the basic skills needed to work as a game designer. Students may learn about working on a team to create a video game and study topics concerning game production. Courses may cover basic design, project management, production tools, quality assurance, content creation and game testing.  Many programs may also feature a project that allows students to put the skills learned to use in creating a video game.

A degree program in game design allows students to build a professional portfolio that can help them pursue a new career in the field or advance in their current careers. Students may learn practical skills that enable them to work in leadership roles within a game design team.

Because program details vary from school to school, the cost of a program is difficult to estimate. The best cost estimates can be obtained through a student’s chosen school.

Graduates of a game design master’s degree program are able to qualify for work on game design teams as game developer, facilitator or manager. Students are typically prepared to begin designing games independently or for a company. They may work on game development for game systems, computers or mobile devices. Specialization may also be possible in the different aspects of design, such as creating storylines, levels or characters. Graduates may also work in positions as code writer or game tester. Other career options that may be available include web designer and computer programmer.
