College Options for the Gamer

I really can’t stress this enough.  If you want to move up and make the big bucks you have got to get yourself some sort of degree related to gaming.  It just is what it is.  I mean realistically we’re just not going to make a ton of money testing games, AND it is hard work.

There are several institutes that I suggest looking into if you’re going to try to push forward in the gaming world.

1. DigiPen Institute of Technology

Located in Redmond Washington DigiPen offers an assortment of education options including:
* Degrees
* Workshops
* High School programs
* Continuing Education opportunities

The degree programs are all on site and classes are offered on a semester basis.  Enrollment is each fall.  You can focus on Game Design, Computer Science, Interactive Simulation, and so much more.

Their current workshops include one on video game programming.

This is a great option for any gamer out there located in Washington.

2. Full Sail University

Although they do offer online programs, these classes are not for game development.  Their campuses are located in Winter Park,FL (a suburb of Orlando) and they really do look amazing.

Bachelor degree options in gaming are game development, computer animation, and game art.  You can also get your master’s degree in game design.

Graduates from their school have been extremely successful and you will see on their site people have worked on games such as Madden 05-06, Guitar Hero on Tour, and Quake 4.  Their graduates have also gone on to work for major companies such as Microsoft XNA Game Studio & Insomniac Games.

These are just two options you have as a gamer looking to expand your horizons.  There are so many more out there.

    “Meanwhile, Kim’s mother Kris Jenner has defended her daughter’s surprise decision. The most important thing to note is that we only use the best quality European hair across our entire product range. Beauty pageant winners have always been instant celebrities in their own right, but they have somewhat proven themselves worthy of the title already have nothing else to prove; that is except to win the coveted world titles. Actually, the Kim Kardashian workout video reviews you can read online are one of the ways through which she shares her secrets with us about what routines she works out with to lose weight.

    This indicates you get a good deal of use from your hat, which means much more appeal for
    your cash. The passion for hats has always been there among the people.
    In addition, the snapbacks do not have Velcro so your hair would not be caught
    and no hat straps will be hanging out loosely.

    Woah! Ι’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard tߋ get that “perfect balance” between user friendlіness and viѕual appeaгance.
    I must say that you’ve done a fantаstic job with this.
    Also, the blog loɑds extremely quіck for me on Firefox.
