Over the past few years, video games have only increased in popularity, and colleges have taken notice!
A new report from the Entertainment Software Association reveals that "U.S. colleges and
universities have taken to games a big way, now offering more coursework
and degrees dedicated to the study of video games than ever before."
Gamers can now take the passion they have for playing and turn it into potential career opportunities. Students who are interested in a slightly less-than-traditional education can enroll in programs designed to help them prepare for jobs in game creation, design, and development. And who better to contribute to the growth of this industry than the kids who grew up playing these types of high-definition, incredibly interactive games?
