In its 2016 ranking of the top undergraduate and graduate schools for students to study game design, The Princeton Review once again places DigiPen Institute of Technology in the top five of both categories.

The Princeton Review ranks DigiPen No. 4 on its list of “Top 50 Undergraduate Schools to Study Game Design” and No. 5 on the list of “Top 50 Graduate Schools to Study Game Design” in 2016. Since the Princeton Review began its ranking of game design schools in 2010, DigiPen has consistently been ranked as one of the top four undergraduate schools.

“For students aspiring to work in the burgeoning field of game design, we strongly recommend DigiPen Institute of Technology and each of the other schools that made our 2016 lists. These are truly the ‘cream of the crop’ institutions from which to launch a career,” said Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP/Publisher. “Their faculties are outstanding. Their facilities are awesome. And their alumni include legions of the industry’s most prominent game designers, developers, artists, and entrepreneurs.”

The selection of schools was based on a 2015 survey of 150 institutions in the U.S., Canada, and abroad offering game design degree programs or courses. Survey questions gathered data on a wide range of areas and topics, including academic offerings, faculty credentials, facilities, technology, career services, and graduates’ starting salaries and career achievements.
