Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

This is a newly-classified subject area for this kind of data, so we don’t currently have very much information to display or analyse yet. Gaming is a growing industry, and over time we can expect more students to study gaming-related degrees – and there could be new opportunities that open up for graduates in these subjects as the economy develops over the next few years.
