Games & Meaningful Play

We are now in our 12th year of offering game design courses, making us one of the first programs to offer game design curriculum. Today, we offer pre-college summer camps and have both an undergraduate minor and a graduate certificate in this area, as well as an active game design and research hub in the Games for Entertainment and Learning (GEL) Lab. Teams of students have won game design competitions, and faculty are supported by grants from such places as the National Science Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for their research on games for learning and health. We host the Meaningful Play Conference in October of even years, and it is one of the premier events for people interested in ways to use games for learning, training, health, and cognitive development.
