 Earning a degree in game programming and development should be considered
 by individuals who have a passion for gaming, and learning how games are
 created. Courses involved in these type of degrees usually include
 gameplay design, 3D graphics, stereoscopic computer graphics, contemporary
 video game platforms, multiplayer game design, and game physics. Having a
 computer that can handle the necessary components involved in video game
 design and development would also be very helpful. The following list
 includes some of the top schools where students can earn this degree, and
 other related degrees to help them enter the video game creation field.
