List of Masters in Gamification Courses

As I regularly get asked ‘Where can I study a Masters in Gamification?‘ I thought it would be worth trying to put together a list. I’ve divided this in to two sections, firstly where you can study a complete Masters and secondly where there is a module on Gamification within another Masters. Please let me know which ones I’ve missed from the list!
