RIT honored for video game design program

Rochester Business Journal

Rochester Institute of Technology is being honored as one of the best schools for video game design in the nation.

The Princeton Review ranked RIT the fourth-best school in the nation for game design and development programs, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. RIT’s program is housed in the School of Interactive Games and Media within the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences.

“Our faculty continue to refine our programs and provide our game design and development students with a world-class educational experience,” said Andrew Sears, dean of the college, in a statement.
 
The fourth-annual list for Best Schools for Gaming 2013 is published in the April edition of PC Gamer magazine. The Princeton Review looked at factors including curriculum, faculty, facilities and student scholarships.

“Our undergraduate program is one of the largest of its kind,” Sears said. “While larger programs are not always better, in this case, the number of students studying game design allows us to offer students a rich variety of relevant courses.”
