More colleges than ever offering game dev courses, programs

Newsbrief: More schools than ever in the U.S. are offering opportunities for students to work toward a game development career. For the first time, all 50 states in the country are offering game dev programs.

The Entertainment Software Association reports that a record 381 colleges, universities, and art/trade schools now offer courses, professional certificates, and undergraduate or graduate degrees for various game industry professions.

California continues to have more schools with game dev programs (70) than any other state. Wyoming, Maine, Mississippi, Alaska, and Arkansas have all started offering courses this year.

The ESA says this proliferation of courses and degree programs reflects the growth of the game industry, as well as its expansion into new technologies such as mobile platforms. The trade group has posted a complete list of the 381 U.S. schools online.
