March 3 - "Your homework is to play Quake and then write about it." It sounds like an adolescent boy's dream come true, but this is no dream. Next fall, students at the University of California at Irvine can begin taking courses in the university's newly announced Interdisciplinary Gaming Studies Program. It's the first step toward a "major" in gaming.

"I think the university is about providing that kind of space."
