Ohio State University is getting into the esports game. While other schools in the state such as Miami University and the University of Akron already offer esports programs, Ohio State is developing what it describes as a comprehensive, first-of-its kind esports program. Students can earn undergraduate and graduate degrees in fields of study offered across five colleges and might include esports management, game art and production, game design, programming and more. There will be elective course offerings and online certification programs as well. The university will also field esports teams to compete against other universities in a new league formed by the Electronic Gaming Federation– sort of the NCAA of college esports.

The arena will be open to all students. –  Joey Morona, cleveland – Read More
