The Princeton Review and PC Gamer have spoken: the UCF graduate video game design program has been named the number 1 graduate game design program in the world, for the third time!

Placing themselves ahead of institutions like New York University and University of Southern California, this marks the third time in just six years that the graduate program has cemented its top spot. Along with UCF’s undergraduate game design program has also garnered a top 20 spot, coming in at number 14, both programs are a testament to the hard work and innovation of the students, faculty and staff.

The game design programs feature state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, along with talented and experienced faculty. Aimed at not just preparing students to enter the video game industry, but to excel in it, the programs have been a continuously growing force to be reckoned with since the graduate program started in 2005 with 15 students. In 2021, the program has international appeal from students applying around the world and over 800 graduates at over 300 companies around the globe.

The graduate video game design program is part of the UCF Downtown campus in the Creative Village district and it is soon to be home to the new Electronic Arts Tiburon studio later this year.
