A Masters in Gaming?
Growing concern is mounting in Australia, as there has been a rush of new blood applying to study for new degrees in computer games. The concern lies within the fact that those applying by the majority think they'll be tuning up their playing skills than doing some hardcore academic work."The Queensland University of Technology's Bachelor of Games and Interactive Entertainment has been so popular with school leavers that the head of the campus's IT faculty fears students have been misled by a catchy course title."One of our terrible fears is that we're going to have this cohort of students who imagine that they're going to be allowed to play games 50 hours a week for three years and then be handed a degree," the dean of information technology, Simon Kaplan, said."This is something that terrifies us because computer games at university is no more about playing computer games than aeronautics is about flying fighter jets."
