Topics I've Started

Hey gamedev, I need help in deciding something.

19 June 2012 - 06:07 PM

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:

There is also a course for writing:

And then there is a software technology degree:

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.
