Bloomfield College was ranked first in New Jersey and 37th nationally among undergraduate schools offering game design programs.
The Princeton Review chose the schools based on its 2021 survey of administrators from 150 institutions in the United States and abroad offering game design courses, majors, or degree programs. The survey gathered information in four areas: academics, faculty, technology, and career prospects. The company analyzed more than 40 survey data points to come up with the rankings. Information on the methodology can be viewed on The Princeton Review website.
According to a college press release:
“Bachelor of Arts in Game Design from Bloomfield College Within the Creative Arts and Technology Division is a hands-on program focused on core principles, concepts, methodologies and skills that are reinforced through the creation of hands-on projects. Many courses also involve students working on collaborative team projects that mimic real-world game development environments. Theoretical knowledge and practical methods converge in these environments to provide students with the experience they need to truly understand and overcome the complexities of creating games.
“The supportive and inspiring community we have at CAT makes this recognition possible,” said Assistant Professor and Game Development Coordinator GJ Lee.
“Our dedicated faculty and staff work together to enrich our program and challenge our students,” said Lee. “We are grateful and recognize their hard work.”
Bloomfield College is the only four-year college in New Jersey to be recognized as a predominantly black college, a Hispanic-serving college, and a minority-serving college. According to administrators, it offers the lowest full-time tuition rate of any private four-year college or university in New Jersey.
