Game design at MSU ranks 1st in the U.S.

Undergrad program outranks all public university programs

GameDev at MSU ranks first in the nation for game design and development programs, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school on its annual ranking list, "Top 50 Undergraduate Schools for Game Design for 2020." Across the world, MSU's game design and development program also ranks seventh among undergraduate programs and 12th among graduate programs.

The program at MSU's College of Communication Arts and Sciences launched a new bachelor of arts in games and interactive media in 2020, adding to an impressive reputation for game development and design.


The Princeton Review chose the schools based on its 2020 survey of administrators at 150 institutions across the U.S. and abroad that offer game design courses, majors or degree programs. The company analyzed more than 40 survey data points to tally the rankings. The survey collected information about the schools' game design programs in four areas: academics, faculty, technology and career prospects.
