Programme Overview

DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore

The Bachelor of Arts in User Experience and Game Design is a multidisciplinary degree that combines coursework in user experience design theory, the humanities, and social sciences to equip you with the skills to create meaningful and engaging interactive experiences.

Students learn about the artistic and narrative principles that make interactive experiences both intuitive and compelling, as well as the tools and processes that professional designers use to implement, test and refine their ideas in a real-world production environment. The result is a skilled designer who has a deeper knowledge of how writing, art, and the social sciences all come into play when creating games, interfaces, and other interactive experiences.
