Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Game and Interactive Media Design
Description: While most people think of recreational video games when they think of gaming, the world of games goes far beyond the screen. Tabletop and live-action games allow people to engage face-to-face. Transformative games are used in education, corporate training, health care and informal learning institutions such as museums and libraries. Gamification and gameful design techniques motivate people to get engaged with the real world by adding a game-based layer.

For our Bachelor of Fine and Applied Arts (BFAA) in Game Design and Development, you’ll take courses from both Laurier and Conestoga College at our campus in Brantford.
