hey,
There are actually a lot of schools starting to offer games courses. The University of North Texas has multiple game classes and a game programming lab where you can learn tons of stuff. The school is in Denton, TX (30 minutes from Dallas). Here is the website for teh game lab:

school website: www.unt.edu

There is also another school called Digipin or something like that. Its in Redmond washington and is a strictly game dev school. don''t know the website though.

Digipen also offers Bachelor degrees now. I've starting to consider going to that lately, but be warned just tuition, fees, books, and housing is going to cost you a good 80,000 for 4 years. This doesn't count food/clothes since I really couldn't come up with a good estimate for that. Also the work is hell (yet very fulfilling).

www.gatech.edu <-- offers undergrad and grad degrees in game design I believe.


I dunno where this rumor comes from, but its just not true, you can specialize you're CS degree in Graphics and Visualization, along with AI, and Human Computer Interaction (interface design kind of things), and take classes in Video Game Design, but GT does not offer ungrad degrees in video game design. There is a masters course in information design in which you may pursue video game design, to some extent.

Not that that takes anything away from Tech, we just don't offer such narrowly focused degrees.

I would like to know what people''s opinions of Digipen were (if any of you went)? I searched for it and it seems all the results are 2-4 years old, does anyone have a more recent opinion on the subject?
