Friday, March 15, 2013
WPI came in at number twelve on the list, and Becker just after at number thirteen. University of Utah in Salt Lake City topped the list. The only other Massachusetts school to make the top listing was Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge.
Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's SVP/Publisher, noted the burgeoning interest among students in game design and the exceptional study options available from specialized college majors to concentrated graduate degrees.
“We salute the schools on our 2013 list for their commitment to this professional field. We hope our project will guide students considering careers in game design to schools best for them on our lists and on to companies at which they can apply their creative ideas and skills for the next generation of game players,” he said.
The report, "Top Schools to Study Video Game Design for 2013," is based on a survey The Princeton Review conducted in 2012-13 of 150 programs at institutions in the U.S.A. and Canada offering video game design coursework and/or degrees.
The Princeton Review's 50-question survey for this project asked schools to report on a range of topics from academic offerings and faculty credentials to graduates’ employment and professional achievements. Among criteria The Princeton Review weighed to make its selections: the school curriculum, faculty, facilities, and infrastructure, plus career services, student scholarships, and financial aid.
