Georgia Tech is ranked #14 on the Animation Career Review 2017 list of top game design schools and colleges in the United States. The Institute moved up one spot on the list after being ranked #15 in 2016.
Animation Career Review cited the Ivan Allen College’s support for game design education within its Computational Media major and Digital Media graduate degrees:
Known as Games@GT, this “institute-wide initiative” was “designed to advance the game community through interdisciplinary research, funding opportunities, tech transfer and expansion of industry collaborations.” Degree options include a B.S. in Computational Media (BSCM) with a Game Studies Focus, an M.S. degree in Digital Media (formerly Information Design and Technology), an M.S. in Digital Media – HCI, and a Ph.D. in Digital Media. The B.S. in Computational Media (BSCM) with a Game Studies Focus is also supported by the School of Literature Communication and Culture within the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
