Games PR & Community Management (with a Placement Year)

A ground-breaking course for the games community managers of the future. This course will get your creative juices flowing, transporting you into a professional environment where you will examine day-to-day experiences of a games community manager. You’ll get to experience how to think creatively, striving for innovation on multiple channels. From gaming communities to social media (Snapchat, Twitch, Reddit, Instagram and beyond), you will learn how to create gaming content and campaigns for a variety of outlets. During your games PR strand you will get to analyse the academic and practical aspects of games PR. You will learn how to examine and develop innovative 360 games PR campaigns that may include social media, influencer outreach, events, consumer media, specialist games press, trade PR and working with third-parties and partners. We always place a great importance on postgraduate employability and, therefore, have a programme of guest lectures from leading industry experts from the world of community management and games PR who will visit each semester to share their experience and set live, real-world briefs for you to work on. On completion of this course you will leave with an outstanding portfolio and showreel that showcases you are industry-ready and can work in a games community management role or social media management role in a variety of industries. Placement year opportunities can be taken up between years 2 and 3 and our Workplace Learning Manager, alongside your course team, will be able to help and support you when exploring your placement opportunities.
