    Thanks to active online and on-campus student communities, contests and game jams, plus access to industry events like PAX East, you'll get the firsthand experience you need to excel in creating video games. Our expert instructors know the industry from the inside and can help you master the skills you need to launch your dream career.

    In 2018, we launched one of the first varsity esports programs in New England on our campus. As a member of the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE), our players compete at the local, regional and national levels.

    SNHU is actively recruiting scholarship students for “Fortnite,” “League of Legends” and “Overwatch.” Our gamers have the opportunity to live in a new esports community on campus, and we’re now building an esports arena.
