The University of Malta was named among the best graduate schools offering the most prominent programs in game design in 2019, according to a press release by the Princeton Review, which compiles and publishes the list.

The Princeton Review — known for its education services and school rankings in dozens of categories — released its 10th annual ranking lists, which name the top 50 undergraduate and top 25 graduate schools.

The University of Malta in Msida was named the 17th best such institution, being listed among the top 25 graduate schools.

The Princeton Review chose the schools based on data it collected in its 2018 survey of administrators at 150 institutions that offer game design courses, majors, or degree programs. Surveyed schools were in the U.S., Canada and abroad. The survey requested information in four areas: academics, faculty, technology, and career prospects. It covered everything from the schools’ courses and facilities to their graduates’ starting salaries and professional achievements. In all, more than 40 data points were analysed to tally the rankings.

“The schools that made our lists this year have stellar programs for aspiring game designers and developers,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief. “Their faculties are outstanding, and their facilities are awesome. Just as impressive: their alumni include many of the video game industry’s most prominent artists, designers, developers, and entrepreneurs,”

The Princeton Review’s full lists are available at the official website of the publication.
