Three-hundred American colleges, universities, and trade and art schools are offering computer or video game-related degrees this school year, representing a nearly 20 percent increase from last year according to a press release from the Entertainment Software Association.
Rich Taylor, senior vice president for communications and industry affairs at the ESA, said the increase is a sign of the expanding role video games play in society.
“While computer and video games have been a source of entertainment for decades, our society is increasingly recognizing the broader uses of games and their positive impact. Whether it is in healthcare, education, business or government, schools across the country see the value of games and are training their students to meet the demand.”
