We're doing something right.
The esports curriculum has expanded into a certification pathway with five courses, each focused on a specific area of esports content creation. The pathway culminates with student internship placements, partnering students with local esports and gaming companies so that they can develop practical experience in the industry, something which is especially vital in a field that is so rapidly developing and changing. Despite the relative youth of the program, these internships have led directly to job offers for graduating and occasionally even current students.

This broadcasting event was truly spectacular and opened new realms I never even considered. I absolutely loved casting. It was fun, exciting, and super-fast paced. Overall there is nothing I would change about the experience.
