The Masters in esports focuses on a critical and investigative approach to the esports ecosystem, covering teams, leagues, tournaments, platforms, brands, game developers, investors and fans.
You will be expected to develop higher level research and analytical skills through the development of a substantive research project of your choice. The focus will be on strategic level management skills, influencing policies and practices in the industry and developing a critical awareness of the sociological, political and legal landscape.
A focus on employability will be intrinsic throughout the esports award. The Esports Ecosystems module covers careers talks, visits and guest speakers from industry along with the opportunity to take up a role overseeing the undergraduate teams on live events at each level.
Like esports itself, this practical course is fast and dynamic, and you’ll be expected to work in a range of esports settings within weeks of starting your course.
