Enrollment in information systems and related fields has been on the decline for over a decade. At the same time, video games are increasing in popularity, especially with undergraduates. Departments at 222 American schools offering video game related undergraduate degrees were analyzed to determine which academic fields have integrated games into their curricula. A majority of the programs were offered either by art / design departments or computing departments, with only one program hosted by a business school. Opportunities still exist within information systems and technology programs to incorporate video games as part of their curriculum.
