I think its more of a detriment to the individual. We’ve all heard about how high the drop out rate is in games courses. Comp Sci degrees have high drop-outs, but games courses seem to be even higher, because 1) its harder for novices and more importantly 2) its not easy and fun like they thought it was going to be. This means lots of people are going to do it and drop out, wasting their own time.
Of those that do complete the course, I could guess that some will think, maybe this isn’t for them, and with a specific games degree, where are they going to go? It’d be easier to branch out with a Comp Sci degree.
