I am currently on a computing science degree, since i got into game programing i been wishing i took a game programming degree. I looked into it and was shocked to find out that my university does a games programming degree. And that i am able to switch to in my final year so that i finish with a game programming degree instead of a computing science degree. At the moment i am not actually at uni, i am on a placement year so i asked my friends that are at uni to look into the course for me. But he said that all they did was edit code that the tutors would give them and that they weren''t really good programmer. I am still two minds if i should switch or not. Computer science is alot more general programing but doing a game programming degree could be alot more fun. What would do?

Hi.

Im a computer science bachelor, and I am currently studying for my master degree. Here is the most important lesson I have learned about college:

Its what you do outside classes that counts! Everyone look at the same class books, everyone do the same assignments, but its what you do at home that will make you a game programmer or not.

So take the most recognised diploma, and learn all you can by yourself.

So i guess the best bet is to stick with the computer science degree.

Is anyone actually doing a game programming degree here? can you tell me what it is like?
