  1. Computing Science Degree?

    Quote:Original post by Tom Sloper Quote:Original post by Sturm5 1. I am wondering if getting a Bachelors in Science with a Computing Science degree is sufficient 2. or whether I really do need to go to a game design school, 3. as I have been reading on most sites I come across on Google. 4. Also, would there be an advantage to pursuing a Masters degree after the BSc? 1. Read FAQ 49. 2. Read Regular college vs. game school More about regular college vs. game school And still more about regular college vs. game school Appearances don't matter as much as you think 3. Then stop reading those websites! They're BAD websites! 4. Nobody can foretell your future for you. Go for the Masters if you want to and are able. Don't go for it if you don't want to but are able. Don't go for it if you want to but cannot, Young Jedi! Thank-you very much! I was poking around Sloperama, which I assume is yours, and I found it to be very useful. I'll definately be checking this a lot over the next few periods of time. And as for the Masters, not even I can foretell my future that far, Master Kenobi. And thanks to the other replies as well. My mind is more at ease now. Edit: By asking if a bachelor's in CS is sufficient I meant for the post-secondary education bit ;) Obviously I have a ton to learn/tinker with outside of school as well.
  2. Hello, I am currently a student at the University of Alberta and enrolled in Arts. I was thinking of going into business but I recently found out that one can major in Computing Science as a Bachelor of Sciences degree. I am wondering if getting a Bachelors in Science with a Computing Science degree is sufficient to enter the Video Game industry from an educational standpoint, or whether I really do need to go to a game design school, as I have been reading on most sites I come across on Google. Also, would there be an advantage to pursuing a Masters degree after the BSc? Thank-you!
