Looking for highly paid work that still allows you to express yourself artistically? Are you interested in bringing ideas to life, thinking critically, and finding creative solutions to problems? If so, application development might just be the right career for you.    

The continued demand for professionals with app development skills has led to it becoming one of the fastest growing careers in the creative sector, with companies constantly on the lookout for new talent who possess the unique blend of artistic flair, inventiveness, and technical knowhow the job requires.

Read on to find out more about how an app development degree can help you access the exciting opportunities in this growing sector.

Where Could Application Development Take You?

The work of application developers is everywhere in the modern world. You can see it in popular social media, messaging, and gaming apps on your mobile device, or in desktop applications like media players and photo editors. Even wearable hardware like fitness monitors and virtual reality headsets require some input from app developers to ensure they are user-friendly and engaging.


App developers also work on hardware like VR headsets

This wide range of different opportunities for app developers means that qualified professionals have a number of diverse employment options, and can easily find work in areas that really interest them. Pursuing an online Master’s in Application Development will give you the opportunity to explore all of these possibilities, helping you to find your niche in the sector and focus on ideas and concepts that you are truly passionate about.

App Development Degrees Combine Technical and Creative Skills

Whether you are already working in app development, another creative profession, or a more technical area such as programming, an app development degree will give you the skills you need to excel in the industry.

Falmouth’s programme is designed to ensure students from all backgrounds are given a broad base of knowledge in every area of app development. You will learn common programming languages and frameworks, but with a focus on how they are applied in a creative context, learning to think critically about the end-user experience, and finding innovative solutions to problems. Our expert instructors will also introduce you to the commercial side of the industry, teaching you how to market and monetise your projects in order to see a real return on your work.      

Benefits of Pursuing an App Development Degree through Flexible Learning

While app development is a growing and highly desirable industry, getting the training you need to break into the sector can be tough for busy professionals with responsibilities at both work and home. Falmouth’s flexible learning programmes allows you to obtain a prestigious Master’s degree from anywhere in the world and schedule your studies around your other commitments so you don’t have to make sacrifices in other areas of your life.

However, that doesn’t mean you will be learning in isolation. Falmouth’s programmes and innovative digital learning platform are designed to encourage and facilitate collaboration between students through group projects, online critiques, and class discussions.
