Video Game Degree To Be Offered At Michigan State

By RobotGod     Feb 14, 2007 in World
Michigan State University is getting involved in the video game industry -- at least in terms of academic programs it's offering.
The school plans to offer a graduate degree in "serious" video game design beginning this fall. The program will allow students to design games that help educate, train or present messages in a fun way.
Concepts for the games range from programs that allow emergency workers to practice making lifesaving decisions to games that teach adolescent girls about self-esteem and maintaining a healthy body.
The program will build on Michigan State's undergraduate video game design specialization and its Games for Entertainment and Learning Lab. Both started in 2005.
Good move. And I like that they are ficused on training and education. Video games can be used as a tool in all manner of fields and this niche will only grow. I do wonder though, how much more growth the video game industry can endure, but I assume they have looked at that aspect and formed their own conclusions.
