    Like it or loath it, e-sports are a real thing now. If you can make a career out of it, you can study it

    That said I'm unclear what they teach you... business and tech skills around the gaming itself? It's not like if you study sports at college you get taught how to take free kicks.

        I know a son of an acquaintance who did a degree in video gaming in Scotland and was on 125k job two years after graduating.

            There's a lot of money in it for the top players/teams.
