This program is designed for students with a background in game design who are ready to move into a career as a game designer in the interactive entertainment or simulation industries.

Students in the Advanced Game Design program will develop a portfolio uniquely tailored toward their desired career path in the games industry. This program provides students with specialization skills not typically found prior to entering industry. Students will gain a solid and practical understanding of how to effectively work with specialists in order to realize their project’s development. To this end, students will have the opportunity to collaborate with student artists in other programs to help bring their games to life. Throughout this intense and focused process, students will be given the opportunity to identify and enhance their strengths and interests, which in turn enables them to enter the workforce with a narrowed focus and competitive edge.

The Nursing program at Langara exposed me to multiple aspects of nursing. With support and encouragement from my instructors and colleagues I was able to pursue my dream of working in public health. Langara assisted me with the tools I needed to excel in the fascinating and ever changing world of public health. Now, five years down the road I am still proud to say that I graduated from the Langara School of Nursing with my BSN.

The Langara difference is the community and the friendships that you build with your classmates and instructors. Students work together to become successful and competent professionals. Instructors are accessible and invested in the students; they love nursing and this is evident in the lessons they impart in class. I always felt supported.
