30 Mar

Are you a high school student who dreams of inventing the next Xbox or Wii game sensation? Then RIT should be your college destination.

The university was ranked by the Princeton Review and GamePro Media, the publisher of GamePro magazine, a video-gaming publication, as having one of the “Top 10” undergraduate programs in video game design in the country.

RIT’s program, which is housed in the Department of Interactive Games and Media within the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, ranks fourth at the graduate level and ninth at the undergraduate level.

RIT has been a pioneer in the field of video game design and development education. It was one of the first universities in the United States to offer a course in game design and development.

RIT’s bachelor’s degree program in game design and development provides a broad-based undergraduate education in computing while exposing students to the breadth of game development processes. Students are required to complete coursework in the liberal arts, social sciences and the laboratory sciences.
