South Korea to Make Computer Gaming a College Major
Posted on May 30, 2014
As a child, were you told by your parents that computer gaming would destroy your life and get you nowhere? Were you grounded from using the computer when you got low grades in school? Well, here’s some good news for you! You can now have a bright future with computer gaming!
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.
