Game Design at Bradley Ranks Among Best in the World

March 25, 2019

For the 5th consecutive year, Bradley University is among the top 15 undergraduate game design programs in the world according to the Princeton Review's 10th annual ranking of the best schools to study game design. Bradley's program is ranked 12th and is again the highest ranked school in Illinois.

Ethan Ham, Chairperson, Department of Interactive Media says "We are thrilled to have our program recognized in this way. The ranking is a reflection of our outstanding students and faculty. I am particularly grateful to our two newest game design faculty, David Abzug and John P. Doran, who have both made huge contributions to the program."

The Princeton Review chose the schools based on data it collected in its 2018 survey of administrators at 150 institutions that offer game design courses, majors, or degree programs. Surveyed schools were in the U.S., Canada, and abroad.

The survey requested information in four areas: academics, faculty, technology, and career prospects. It covered everything from the schools' courses and facilities to their graduates’ starting salaries and professional achievements. In all, more than 40 data points were analyzed to tally the rankings. The Princeton Review posts information about its methodology for its game design school rankings here.
