Ferris State University To Offer Bachelor’s Degree In Esports

Ferris State University is the latest school to adopt gaming at an organizational level. On February 18th, FSU’s Board of Trustees approved plans for a new Bachelor of Science degree focused on Professional Esports Productions.

“The Professional Esports Productions is an exciting, cross-disciplinary degree program, which we plan to deliver fully online. The esports market is emerging as a fast-growing industry with careers in the many related professions,” said the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Bobby Fleischman. “This degree program fits nicely with the construction of the Center for Virtual Learning and provides Ferris with a competitive advantage over our Michigan counterparts, as well as an opportunity to offer this degree online to an expanded cohort of students regionally, nationally, and beyond.”

According to Fleischman, he believes that as many as 20 students will enroll in the program during its first year which will begin this coming Fall. Moreover, he expects that number to grow to 60 students by the Fall of 2025.

Ferris State University is a four-year public school based in Big Rapids, Michigan that was founded in 1883. There were over 11,000 students enrolled at the higher-education institution as of the Fall 2020 semester.
