[size=4][color=#000000][font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]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.[/font][/color]

[color=#000000][font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Game development course which seems programming oriented as well as some creative classes:[/font][/color]

[color=#000000][font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]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:[/font][/color]

[color=#000000][font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]There is also a course for writing:[/font][/color]

[color=#000000][font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]And then there is a software technology degree:[/font][/color]

[color=#000000][font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]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.[/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Thanks again guys.[/font][/color][/size]
