DigiPen receives top rankings from Princeton Review

In its fifth annual report, The Princeton Review has named DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond one of the leading schools for the study of game design.

The college admission services company ranked DigiPen No. 3 on its list of "Top Undergraduate Game Design Programs," as well as No. 5 on its list of "Top Graduate Game Design Programs" for 2014.

The Princeton Review based its selections on a comprehensive survey of 150 institutions in the United States, Canada and abroad offering coursework and degree programs in video game design. As part of the survey, schools reported on a range of topics, including academic offerings, faculty credentials and graduates' employment and professional achievements. The company also assessed schools based on program curriculum, facilities, career services, technology infrastructure and more.

For the second year in a row, The Princeton Review has teamed up with PC Gamer monthly magazine, which will feature the top schools list as part of its May issue, now available.

"For students considering careers in video game design, these are the 'cream of the crop' institutions to attend," Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's senior-publisher, said. "Collectively, they have graduated many of the field's top developers, artists, designers, and industry professionals."
