Students of the Digital Games programme at the University of Malta work on practical game development projects and apply techniques of game design to areas such as education and media. They also engage in critical game analysis and develop experiments with digital game technology.
Game design is the core of the programme and is taken by all students. In our game design classes, students learn the techniques and processes involved in conceptualizing and crafting a game and reflect on the socio-cultural roles and aspirations of game design. They explore game ideas, build and test prototypes and develop games by themselves or as part of a creative team.
Students choose to complement their study of game design with one of two streams: Game Analysis and Design or Game Technology and Design.
