As in past years, UC Santa Cruz is featured on Princeton Review’s 2016 lists for top undergraduate and graduate programs in game design

The game design programs at UC Santa Cruz were named among the top programs in the country by the Princeton Review, an education services company. The undergraduate and graduate programs at UC Santa Cruz were both ranked in the top 25 in the company’s lists for 2016 of the best undergraduate and graduate schools for students to study and launch a career in game design.

UC Santa Cruz ranked 11th on the Princeton Review’s list of the “Top 25” graduate schools and 23rd on the list of the “Top 50” undergraduate programs. The full lists are posted at Top Schools for Game Design 2016. The web site also provides information on the Princeton Review’s methodology for the rankings and profiles of the schools.

UCSC offers a broad range of programs in computer game design. The Baskin School of Engineering established the first undergraduate major in computer game design in the UC system in 2006. The campus also has three graduate programs with an emphasis on games: the professional M.S. in games and playable media; the digital arts and new media M.F.A.; and the Ph.D. or M.S. in computer science with a games focus.

The Princeton Review based its rankings on a survey it conducted in 2015 of 150 institutions offering game design coursework or degrees in the United States, Canada, and some countries abroad.

I only wish the event had been twice as long so I could've spent more time learning about the various research teams and their activities. Wow.World-changing research has a new home in Santa Cruz! It was standing room only at the grand opening of our new home at 2300 Delaware, hopefully a sign of more exciting milestones to come. 🎉 🎉🎉 ... See MoreSee Less
