Why Northeastern?

A Unique View on Game Design and Interactive Media Education and Research 

The programs on Game Design and Interactive Media at Northeastern are unlike other programs in the country. Even though there are over 300 game programs, we believe our programs give students a unique mix between industry (drawing from the industry lecturers from around the area in Boston as well as internal faculty) and research, arts, science, design, and computation.

Internationally-Renowned Faculty

The current faculty who teach within the program are internationally known in the area of games. The current mix of faculty present a unique mix between practice (in industry or as artists) and research within the area cultivating a center of excellence towards preparing students for the industry or academic careers within the area.
