Hey gamedev. I have a few majors to pick from. My goal is to become a video/computer game designer, specifically writing for games or level design. I see four paths I can take at uni, but I'm not sure which will give me the most benefits in the real world. I like to write, but I don't know how to program. I feel like I should learn some programming so I put the major that I think would help the most up the top (game development) then the other three are in no particular order. If I could hear from someone who has been in my position or a similar one and then went on to work in the industry that would be great. Thanks guys.

Game development course which seems programming oriented as well as some creative classes:

Interactivity and games course which looks heavily on the creative side. My only gripe here is that I'm not left with a lot of options if the game design dream doesn't pan out for me:
http://www.courses.m...ivity-and-games

There is also a course for writing:
http://www.courses.m...ajor-in-writing

And then there is a software technology degree:
http://www.courses.m...ware-technology


I'm confused. They all seem like decent choices, but what I'm looking for is the one that will make me the most appealing to potential employers.
Thanks again guys.

Sorry about that. I'll give them a read now.
