Georgia Southern University Undergraduate Game Design Program Ranked One of the Best in the United States and Canada by The Princeton Review
Georgia Southern University’s Undergraduate Game Design Program in its College of Information Technology has been ranked one of the top 50 in the United States and Canada by The Princeton Review.
‘This ranking by The Princeton Review highlights the ground-breaking education our students receive in the College of Information Technology,” said Ron Shiffler, dean of the College of Information Technology. ‘As one of the only colleges of its kind in the Southeast United States, we are preparing students for work in a field that will have global impact and opportunities for decades to come.”
The Princeton Review selected Georgia Southern’s program for its Top 50 after reviewing more than 500 similar programs in the United States and Canada.� The Princeton Review made its selection after interviewing faculty members and assessing factors that include the curriculum, college facilities and infrastructure, financial aid, and career opportunities. The rankings will appear in the April edition of GamePro magazine.
‘Game design professionals are increasingly in demand, but the industry remains a competitive one,” said Shiffler. ‘Pursuing a degree from a University ranked among the best by a publication the caliber of The Princeton Review will be one more way our graduates stand out once they reach the job market.”
In addition to its top-ranked game design program, Georgia Southern’s College of Information Technology also offers one of only ten VMware academies in the world where students can graduate certified in VMware virtualization technology. The college also offers a highly sought-after SAP certification. Both allow students to graduate with more hands-on training than some already working in the industry, and saves future employers thousands of dollars in training costs.
