Bloomfield College Game Design Program Ranked 2nd in State by Princeton Review

By Alicia Cook

The Princeton Review released its ninth annual ranking lists naming the best undergraduate and graduate schools for students to study—and launch a career in—game design.

Bloomfield College captured the #2 spot in New Jersey and the #44 spot overall on the undergraduate schools list.

The Princeton Review chose the schools based on its 2017 survey of institutions in the U.S., Canada, and abroad offering game design degree programs or courses. The survey gathered data on everything from the schools' game design academic offerings and lab facilities to their graduates’ starting salaries and career achievements. More than 40 data points in four areas (academics, faculty, technology, and career) were analyzed to tally the lists.

“The CAT Division has a positive community of faculty and staff who are dedicated to supporting our students and concentration,” said Assistant Professor GJ Lee. “It's wonderful to see our college receive this recognition.”

Bloomfield College’s Bachelor of Arts in Game Design within the Creative Arts & Technology Division is a practice-orientated program focused on core principles, concepts, methodologies and skills that are reinforced through the creation of hands-on projects. There are also many courses where students will work on collaborative team-based projects that mimic real-world game development environments. Theoretical knowledge and practical methods converge within these environments to provide students with the experience they need to truly understand and overcome the complexities involved in making games.

“The schools on our list offer extraordinary opportunities to launch a career in the game industry,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor in Chief. “We want to help students find the best program for their needs and interests. The top schools on our lists will give students the skills and experience they need to pursue a career in this dynamic and burgeoning field.”

The Princeton Review has reported its game design program rankings annually since 2010. It has teamed up with PC Gamer, a monthly magazine published by Future plc, as its reporting partner on this project since 2013. PC Gamer's  May issue has a feature on the ranking lists that details the schools' unique programs, prominent professors, and alumni. The issue lands in subscriber mailboxes this week and on newsstands March 27.

“National recognition from the Princeton Review validates what we at Bloomfield College witness on a daily basis. We have stellar faculty and programs that are some of the best in the country,” said Dr. Tresmaine Grimes, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty.
