The Bradley Advantage

Building on Bradley’s Princeton Review-ranked undergraduate game design program, the game design and development master's degree offers you a more specialized focus on game design. Your experience is comparable to the industry experience of founding a game startup and developing a ready-for-publication game. Working game developers provide feedback as you consolidate what you learned as an undergraduate and apply it to an intense game development process. 

Successful Outcomes

In recent years, almost all of Bradley's undergraduate game design students found jobs within six months of graduation at Blizzard, Warner Bros. Games, Deep Silver Volition, Obsidian Entertainment, Oculus VR and more. An M.S. degree in game design and development gives you an added advantage in the evolving and highly competitive video game marketplace.
