The company’s 40-question survey asked schools to report on everything from their academic offerings and faculty credentials to their graduates’ starting salaries and employment experience. Among criteria The Princeton Review weighed to make its selections: the school’s academics, facilities, career services and technology.
“The schools that made our lists this year have stellar programs for aspiring game designers and developers,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. “Their faculties are outstanding and their facilities are awesome. Just as impressive: their alumni include many of the video game industry’s most prominent artists, designers, developers and entrepreneurs.”
ACU’s game design program is part of the digital entertainment technology curriculum, which equips students with tools needed to create digital content and learn about the creative processes behind concepts and design.
The Princeton Review teams up with PC Gamer magazine as its reporting partner on this project, and the magazine’s May issue includes a feature with some of the schools’ unique programs, class offerings, prominent professors and alumni. The full report can be seen at princetonreview.com/game-design.
