Earlier this month, the Princeton Review named the College of Computing and Digital Media to its lists of "Top 50 Undergraduate Schools to Study Game Design for 2018" and "Top 25 Graduate Schools to Study Game Design for 2018." The undergraduate program placed 28th this year. The graduate program ranked 17th.

The organization chose DePaul's programs based on a survey of 150 institutions across the U.S., Canada and abroad. The survey evaluated everything from the schools' academic offerings and lab facilities to their graduates' starting salaries and career achievements.

Offered in the College of Computing and Digital Media, DePaul's game development degrees equip students to become the next generation of leaders in the growing field of games and associated industries. Courses are taught with a mixture of theory and applied practice for those interested in game design and programming at the highest level. Throughout their time in the program, students collaborate with artists, game designers, producers, programmers, writers and audio designers.
