Students who have completed an undergraduate degree may choose to further their education by working on a master’s degree, either from the same college or a different institution. A master’s degree can provide the opportunity to further specialize in a preferred area of study.
What is a Master in Gamification? This field of study can include designing and building interactive video games, applying machine learning and integrating artificial intelligence as it relates to gaming, 3D game development and programming mobile apps. Many students also focus on how to apply gamification concepts and theories to other types of programs, including child and adult training or behavior modification, to provide a more rewarding and effective user experience.
Graduates often learn programming in a variety of languages while turning their passion for gaming into a career. They may also learn to take complex training concepts and interpret them into a gaming environment to strengthen engagement and retention. Critical thinking and problem-solving skills can be honed while pursuing this degree.
The cost to earn a master’s degree often varies depending on the program length, location of the university, and whether the program is delivered in person or online. The number of classes needed to graduate can impact the overall expense.
Graduates may find rewarding careers as game-building engineers, either for a studio or by independently running their own companies. Software firms may hire graduates as digital designers or principal product managers to develop games or add gaming features to their existing programs. Those with an interest in training can work as a learning experience consultant with educational companies of any size to translate training into a gaming environment for both children and adults. Graduates may also become department or product managers for artificial intelligence or machine learning divisions at high-tech firms or for government agencies including military organizations.
