Developed in response to industry need, this three-semester program simulates a realistic work environment in which designers, coders and artists integrate their skills. You’ll learn to communicate game level design concepts and gain practical skills to implement and evaluate this knowledge in a simulated work situation.
The Sheridan game level design courses focus on offering applied, real-world skills development. Assignments and class work focus on case studies. You’ll learn both 2D and 3D game design, while gaining industry-specific skills in game design and development, story and scripting, cinematography and sound, multi-player systems, game documentation and play testing.
What You’ll Learn
- Create and combine pre-existing and original game components in the construction of game levels.
- Design, develop and test functional prototypes of game levels that are consistent with predetermined rules, mechanics, characters and narrative structures.
- Integrate increasingly more complex graphics, models, animation, sound and cinematography into game levels.
- Create game documents for communication and record keeping that are consistent with industry standards.
- Determine appropriate scripting techniques for game level development.
- Work effectively in a collaborative, team-based environment providing guidance to others in resolving issues.
- Manage projects and specific job role activities, using effective project and personal time management.
- Evaluate the effectiveness of game level design by applying the principles of design theory.
- Evaluate the role of historical trends to situate contemporary designs.
- Analyze new trends in game level design in order to keep pace with changing markets and technology.
- Adapt to the requirements and limitations of specific hardware platforms and software environments to create progressively more difficult game levels.

There's a weird narrative out there about Sheridan only caring about international students. I'm a domestic student and I finished my advanced diploma in marketing last year, which included the search marketing course. My profs were industry professionals who were extremely helpful and approachable. Most of them knew me by my first name.
I'm working at an agency in downtown Toronto right now and loving every second of it. I highly recommend the school and the program.
