Top 50 Game Design Programs

The Princeton Review and GamePro magazine have selected the best institutions in the U.S. and Canada where you can study game design. We ranked the top eight programs and named (alphabetically) 42 distinguished others.

We chose these 50 programs based on a 2009-10 survey of administrators at institutions offering game design coursework and/or degrees. Selection criteria included the quality of the curriculum, faculty credentials, facilities and infrastructure as well as data on scholarships, financial aid and career opportunities.
