Into video games, anime or pop-culture — or not? You don’t have to be a big-time gamer to find a place in Texas Wesleyan University’s esports program!  

Texas Wesleyan University is known for its strong academic programs, but it's also home to a thriving esports program — and it’s not just about playing video games. Students can learn valuable skills in content creation, social media management, community outreach and event planning and no experience is even needed. That’s because the program recognizes that the esports industry is more than just gaming and seeks to prepare students for a career in this fast-paced and rapidly evolving industry. 

You can learn how to create high-quality content, such as live streams, highlight reels and social media posts, that can be used to promote the program and the university as a whole. This skill is highly valued in the esports industry, as companies are always looking for talented content creators to help promote their brands and engage with their audiences. 

Social media management is another important skill that is emphasized in the TXWES esports program. Help create and manage social media accounts, develop social media strategies and engage with the page’s audience. Knowing how to build social media pages is essential in the esports industry, as social media plays a crucial role in building a brand and engaging with fans. 

Community outreach and event planning are also important aspects of the TXWES esports program. You can learn how to connect with the local community and organize events that promote the program and the university. You’ll get the opportunity to network with industry professionals and gain valuable experience in event planning and management. 

Texas Wesleyan University's esports program goes beyond playing video games and provides students with a comprehensive education that prepares them for a career in many industries. By emphasizing content creation, social media management, community outreach and event planning, students gain valuable skills and experience they need to succeed in not only the esports industry, but also in their careers.  

But don’t just take our word for it. Check out how senior Cindy Flores is taking her esports experience and combining it with her exercise science major to study how to bring gaming into physical therapy. Or see how Nick Hains is gaining career experience with esports as he gets his MBA.  

No matter what your interests are, you’ll gain friends, be a part of a welcoming community and develop invaluable skills by joining Texas Wesleyan esports!
