About Film Studies with Game Design at Bangor University

This specially designed degree offers students the opportunity to study Game Design together with Film Studies. In common with all our Creative Studies and Media courses, this degree is structured around a balance between theory and practice.

For the Game Design element of the degree, practical work - with game engines or physical game materials - is integrated with opportunities to engage critically with theories of gaming culture, mechanics, narratives and aesthetics. Together these provide students with the insight needed to produce games that are both immersive and engaging. During the course, you will have the opportunity to create games in many formats, including: 2D platforms games, 3D games, board game and collectable card games. ‘Play’ will be used in teaching and development aspects of the course.

The BA in Film Studies with Game Design combines the study of these subjects with a critical investigation of topics such as Film History, Film Language, Film Criticism and Theorising Film, as well as allowing you to take specialist film modules in areas such as America on Film, Film Authorship, Film Genre, Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock and European Cinema. You will be encouraged to apply concepts and skills gained in your major degree subject (Film Studies) to the design of games, thereby developing an interdisciplinary attitude to film, game design and the creative industries in general.
