Thanks for all your posts. I am really finding it difficult to narrow my choices down. Each course has its attractions. I think I'm going to apply to all of them and make a decision depending on where I get in. Cross the bridge when you reach it approach seems appropriate here.

Seriously, send emails to specific faculty that share your interests before you apply - make sure they do in fact share your interests. Then apply - you may save yourself the application fee. Also, it is good to have a faculty advocate when they're deciding who to accept.

Thanks for all the replies. They have been very helpful. There are a few further questions I have.

1) I presume that in order to get a job post-graduation, I would have to have a portfolio of some kind. Would the coursework of a postgraduate course allow me to work on my portfolio concurrently? Should I start working on my portfolio right away or can it wait?

2) In terms of programming experience, I have a couple of internship stints on my resume. I haven't quite worked with graphics or any such game related area, but have worked on ASP.NET/C# projects. Would this add to my credentials in any way or should I try getting internships with a game focus?

Once again, I appreciate the time taken by you to answer my questions. Thank you again.

If you're bright and self-motivated, it's always possible for you to just go ahead and start doing projects for yourself without paying a ton of money for others to teach you. You already have a Bachelor's Degree, maybe it's time to start getting work experience and teaching yourself the rest on your own time.

Recognition of courses is always going to be subjective. It is unlikely that any company would have heard of a course from another country.
Did I hear India ? :P
I am in search for game development institute in INDIA.. Expecting some help..
Thanks and Regards,

Hello there,

My Education Qualifications : I did my Bachelor Degree.
My Working Experience : I am an iOS developer and I developed couple of games(small 2D games) and applications.

This is all about me.

My dream is to do my masters in Game Development, because I want to learn/grow more in game development. And I want to do Masters in US, can you please help me what are the best universities that offer Masters in Gaming?

Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Madhu.
