BA Game Design Programme

What is this programme about?Game Design, BA

Computer, video, and mobile games are the medium of the future. Already today, more than 40 percent of Germans profess their love for them, with 90 percent of those people playing them multiple times a week. Games mean entertainment and business, yet they also reflect personal expression and global perspectives – and most of all, they’re a lot of fun. As a game designer, you’ll create innovative game mechanics and shape game narratives. With your expertise, you’ll be involved in all stages of development: from the first idea through to the technical and creative conceptual design and finally the design of spaces and characters.

At the University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE), you’ll have the unique opportunity to put together your own individual combination of game design, development and art, which means that you’ll get familiar with the individual disciplines as well as their mutual influences.

This programme consists of six semesters. Find out what will you study by downloading the course’s curriculum.


In the Game Design programme, your studies will focus on the development and creation of innovative and experimental games. As a student, you’ll receive an overview of the business, culture, and markets surrounding computer games, from AAA to indie games and experimental formats.

You’ll have classes in the areas of game design, game art and game programming, as well as their interplay with each other. From the first semester on, you’ll learn how to master the development process in teams on a project basis. To round out the development of your own games and prototypes, you’ll learn about the theoretical aspects of gaming as a medium, receive an overview of the financial perspectives and get insight into the industry at the national and international levels. In interdisciplinary seminars, workshops, and study trips, you’ll expand your horizons.

Our international and intercultural Berlin UE Campus offers ideal preparation for your career. Our teachers are your mentors because your success is our goal! In the 5th semester, you also have the opportunity to try out your creative skills directly during an internship or semester abroad.
