This may be old news to some, but check this out.  Vrgrrl is ahead of her time. Video game design classes offered at more major universities.

thanks momonan! video game design classes are definitely becoming more prevalent. next semester i'm teaching a science in children's museums class for my community of undergrad women scientists-to-be and reworking my video game design class for next fall. lots of lessons learned this semester -- even though these courses are "new," there are some advantages to keeping your co-instructor from making things "too" experimental. eventually the semester does end and i'm not a big fan of incomplete grades that end up bringing the class into the next semester. so "structure"? not a bad thing. lol. but the students have been pretty good sports and good student "colleagues." too many times instructors don't give students enough of a role in shaping courses...
