Education In The Games Industry: Yes or No?

Since this seems to be a very common topic that pops up quite often in General Discussion, we decided to keep all education related questions consolidated into one thread. Not only will this keep the boards from cluttering up with redundant topics, but it will allow users to find all the information they need in one place.

Below is a list of some past education related threads and some outside resources. If you know of any others that should be included, shoot us a PM and we'll be sure to add it in.

Thanks to Nerf Bat Ninja for compiling some of these in a recent thread, which is being shamelessly copied and pasted into this sticky.
