Princeton Review Ranks Becker College #10 in Best Video Game Design

Friday, March 02, 2012

 

Becker College is building a reputation as one of the best places to study video game design in the country, and earned a ranking of No. 10 for its program in the latest poll by The Princeton Review.
 This marks the third consecutive year Becker has been included in the Top-10, and the school ranks an impressive second in New England, behind only the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since receiving recognition from The Princeton Review in their inaugural video game list in 2010, Becker has seen enrollment go up and helped found the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute on its campus.

 “Recognition by The Princeton Review confirms our belief that Becker College’s computer game design program offers excellence in course work and real-world preparation that creates value for students and employers,” says Becker College President Robert E. Johnson. “We are confident that partnerships created through our affiliation with the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute will build on our success and continue to set the standard in digital games education.”

Becker has seen several graduates of the program go on to work for gaming production companies Harmonix, Blizzard and Blue Fang games. Becker students have also created games used by entities across the Commonwealth like UMASS Medical School, Danforth Museum and Old Sturbridge Village, with future games scheduled for use at the Worcester Historical Museum and Worcester Youth Center.

The Princeton Reviews list compiled the Top-10 graduate and undergraduate programs in video game design. It also listed 22 undergraduate and 8 graduate programs as honorable mentions. You can find the complete list here.
