The Princeton Review and GamePro magazine ranked the College as one of the 50 best undergraduate institutions in the U.S. and Canada at which to study game design. TCNJ was the only New Jersey school that made the list.
Of the roughly 500 programs at which students can study game design in the U.S. and Canada, The Princeton Review selected the top programs based on a survey of administrators at institutions offering game design coursework and/or degrees. The comprehensive survey numbered more than 50 questions and covered areas from academics and faculty credentials to graduates’ employment and career achievements. Criteria included the quality of the curriculum, faculty, facilities and infrastructure. The Princeton Review also looked at data on scholarships, financial aid and career opportunities.
TCNJ’s game design curriculum draws students and faculty from across campus. Through courses offered by the Interactive Multimedia Program and the Department of Computer Science, students explore topics ranging from programming, graphic design, and music and sound recording and production to storytelling, collaboration, and project management.
