    Now for a rather strange question, does anyone know of the better courses in the US in Games Design or at least a good resource for finding good info out on them. Talking about BSc.’s or the equivalent like. A friend of mine from over there really wants to do one and he doesnt even know where to start looking. I remember people talking about them in brief here but a search turned up nothing.

    Also, hes also interested in art/csg/level design but thinks he’d prefer a general course.
    He also doesnt seem to mind relocating..
