RIT’s game design and development program has jumped to second at the graduate level and sixth at the undergraduate level, according to The Princeton Review and PC Gamer. In 2011, RIT ranked fourth and ninth, respectively. RIT’s program is housed in the School of Interactive Games and Media within the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences.

The Princeton Review, one of the nation’s best known education services companies, teamed with PC Gamer to produce the “Best Schools for Gaming 2012.” The third-annual list is published in the April edition of PC Gamer magazine. Selection criteria included the quality of the curriculum, faculty credentials, facilities and infrastructure as well as data on scholarships, financial aid and career opportunities.

“Each year we receive more applications than we can accommodate, making the program evermore selective,” says Andrew Phelps, director of the School of Interactive Games and Media. “The students in the program are truly amazing and continually impress me with their capability, diligence and success in the industry.”
