RIT’s undergraduate program ranked third on the list of top undergraduate schools, while its graduate program landed fourth on the list of top graduate schools for game design studies.  

New York University earned the number one spot on both the undergraduate list (which names the top 50 schools) and the graduate list (which names the top 25 schools).  

The Princeton Review tallied the ranking lists for 2023 based on a survey the company conducted in 2022 of administrators at 150 institutions offering game design courses and/or degrees. Most of the institutions are in the U.S., while two are in Canada and seven are abroad.   

The 50-question survey broadly covered four areas: academics, faculty, technology and career prospects. 

“We recommend these schools as outstanding choices for students considering a career in the exciting field of game design,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. “Their programs and faculties are first-rate. Their facilities are state-of-the-art. And their alumni include many of the game design industry’s most successful artists, designers, developers and entrepreneurs.”
