Benedict College Becomes The First HBCU To Offer An Esports Degree Track To Help Students Tap Into The Billion-Dollar Industry

After two years in the making, Benedict College offers esports as a major — marking the institution as the first HBCU to do so — WACH FOX 57 reports. What’s more, the South Carolina college has launched an esports gaming room.

“It is a billion-dollar industry, it’s growing every year, and there is more opportunities, especially for African Americans and people of color in esports,” said Dr. Paula Shelby, head of the school’s HPER department. “We have competitions at Benedict College, as well as out in the community, and then we always get invitations to compete at a national level.”
