Master´s Degree in Designs, Development and Marketing of Videogames

2023/2024 · 120 credits

Access and admission

UDC Master’s studies programmes are open to students with an undergraduate degree or equivalent from a recognised Spanish university, or an equivalent qualification from a recognised third-level institution in the EHEA.

Candidates from non-EHEA university systems are not required to have their qualifications officially recognised, provided the UDC is satisfied that the learner outcomes and status of their non-EHEA qualification are homologous to the equivalent degree in Spain. This is an application-specific statement of equivalence only: under no circumstances may the University’s admission of non-EHEA qualifications be construed as a form of official accreditation.

Candidates from non-EHEA university systems are required to have their qualifications officially recognised if they request access to master's degrees that qualify for a regulated profession.

Applications for UDC Master’s studies programmes will be assessed on the basis of specific entry criteria, including the candidate’s academic qualifications and merits. Information relating to entry procedures and requirements will be included in the programme structure for each degree.

The decision to offer a student a place on a UDC Master’s degree programme is the result of an application-specific evaluation process, and has no bearing on the academic or professional status of the candidate’s existing qualifications.

Recommended profile

The profoundly multidisciplinary nature of this industry makes this qualification of interest to students from a wide range of backgrounds such as Art and Design, Audiovisual Communication, Computer Science and Business. The master's degree is oriented, through its lines of intensification, so that students can both broaden their previous training in their field of origin, specialising in the field of video games, and learn about other areas involved, adding this new training to their previous knowledge to acquire a more generalist profile for the sector.

The entry profile therefore corresponds to a higher degree in one of the subjects related to the courses taught in these studies. Given that there is no official catalogue of degrees, and although their names may differ, related degrees will be understood to be those degrees that provide training in competences similar to the following:

Degree in Audiovisual Communication, Degree in Computer Engineering, Degree in Industrial Design Engineering, Degree in Business Administration and Management, Degree in Business Studies, Degree in Fine Arts, Degree in Architecture Studies, Degree in Animation, Degree in Video Game Design and Development.

Students are expected to have enthusiasm for study and practical work and ease of integration into a team; with a first-person knowledge of the world of video games as a user, with curiosity and enthusiasm to learn how they are carried out and the way in which the industry develops.
