Chung-Ang University, one of South Korea’s top 10 schools, will be accepting computer gamers into the school as “athletes.”

Starting this school year, the university will be accepting eSports applicants and putting them in the school’s Department of Sports Science, which is traditionally known as the home of ball games and other physical sports.

The offer may be non-traditional, but maybe Chung-Ang sees this as a step towards making gaming the next “it” in the next few years.
