The world of video game design is not for those who simply love to play video games. It is a complex science that has become one of the nation’s most popular college majors. VGD combines artistic talent with high mathematics and computer programming ability. The serious designer will look for schools with “industry current” facilities, small classes, high post graduate employment rates and supportive faculty who come from the actual gaming industry.
"The world of video gaming has come a long way since Pac-Man. Today, there’s an increased demand for animation and visual effects in everything from sophisticated video games to movies to corporate presentations. In fact, jobs in this field are expected to grow 10% annually – faster than most other occupations between now and 2026."
