Welcome to World Building University (WBU)! The online courses provide step-by-step instruction on how to create all aspects of great fantasy and science fiction worlds. Each includes a series of video lessons, quizzes to test your retention of what you’ve learned, and assignments designed to make your creation a reality instead of a dream. Courses are intended for both authors, game designers, and hobbyists.

As we just launched in early 2019, new courses are still being added and will be for several years. Please check back if a course you’d like is not yet available. If you have suggested courses, you can use the contact page to write WBU, or take the survey.
