Keep up with OCU esports
Esports | OCU
Esports at OCU offers competitive play, team building, and an opportunity to strengthen connections between students of all academic disciplines and interests. Our Varsity teams compete in Call of Duty, Rocket League, Overwatch, Valorant, and League of Legends.
We believe esports is much more than just game play. Our physical wellness program focuses on wrist strength and eye strain, as well as basic cardio to keep our players as healthy as possible. Our mental wellness program includes workshops focused on esports students and their specific needs. Additionally, our Esports Management degree program partners with our esports team, so if you have an interest in pursuing management and production in the esports world, you will gain hands-on experience directly in the esports industry.
And better still, we offer competitive scholarship opportunities for a select number of varsity-level esports team members based on performance in tryouts. Information on tryout dates will be shared with all interested students by the Esports Director in the spring of each academic year. This award may be renewed each year by the Esports Director based on student performance and team participation, as well as good academic standing with a minimum 3.0 GPA.

Oklahoma City University has a degree program in Esports Management. To prepare students for careers in esports management and promotions, the bachelor’s degree program will incorporate:

- content development.
“This is a cutting-edge program that will give students a competitive edge as they seek careers in the dynamic field of electronic sports,” said Dr. Amy Cataldi, Dean of the Petree College of Arts & Sciences.
Career possibilities for graduates include coaching, marketing, producing, commentating, editing and streaming, among others.
