Game Design and Development

The Game Design and Development Program at Michigan State University was founded in 2005, and has grown by leaps and bounds into a Top 10 Ranked program by the Princeton Review. The program offers a mix of disciplines and backgrounds, with faculty and students comprised of designers, artists and programmers. The GEL Lab, or Games for Entertainment and Learning Lab, offers students state-of-the-art technology to design prototypes and techniques, and to advance research on the social and individual effects of digital games.
