Wilmington University recently announced it would be introducing an esports program to the school. This comes following a partnership unveiled on April 11th that was formed between the college and Futures First Gaming.
Futures First Gaming will work with Wilmington University to create degree and certificate programs focused on esports. FFG will also provide Wilmington students with educational materials and training exercises related to a variety of areas in gaming.
“The agreement between WilmU and FFG leverages the capabilities of both to ensure there’s academic rigor that benefits students with and without esports and game design credentials,” said Scott Shaw, the academic chair of WilmU’s Game Design program, in a press release. “There’s so much more to it beyond programming and game design, and this agreement provides pathways to educational credit for skill-building, and opportunities to gain a wider perspective of the industry.”
Wilmington University is a private institution located in New Castle, Delaware. There were more than 20,200 students enrolled at the school as of the 2020-21 academic year.
