University of the Visayas New School (UVNS) announced that they are now offering eSports Gaming course for senior high school students this upcoming school year.
If you are more interested in what’s happening behind the scenes of producing a game, there will be Game Development classes. But in case you will be actually taking the eSports course, UVNS prepared a lot of core subjects for you: Theories, Mechanics, Strategies and Game Awareness. Prospected students will be also taught things about game design, branding, shout casting, and entrepreneurship.
“We’ll have game strategy for Dota 2 and we will have game design and development animation and 2D and 3D animation, and of course, game creation. After two years, the students can either choose to be game creators, designers, or e-sports players in the professional league,” – Genesis Raña, founder and school director.
And probably one of the best benefits of enrolling in UVNS is their facilities. The school is said to have all the right tools for their future students to be utilized for learning. Tools that I’m pretty sure a lot of PC gamers here in the country have dreamt getting their hands on.
