The animation major looks at both 3-dimensional and 2-dimensional projects that are meant to train and show the skills of the students. Students look at storyboarding, stop motion, film, video production, set construction, lighting, sound, sculpture and public speaking. Animation is one of the most popular majors among the students. Animation is a strong digital based major that works predominantly with technology.

‘Animation is a medium that breathes life into concept through movement. As an Animation student, you’ll discover how the dialogue of an otherwise stagnant image or object changes and evolves when put to motion. You will create narrative and experimental animation that bring both characters and environments to life. Our integrated curriculum focuses on sequential narrative storytelling, methods of animation, conceptual development, framing and staging, storyboarding, animatics, layers, and motion and figure studies.’

Upon graduation, a degree in animation can get students jobs as 3D character animators, game designers, storyboard artists, animators and independent filmmakers. The professors of the major have a long history in the field and care deeply for their students and the animation profession. Graduates of the program have gone on to work with Disney and Pixar among other companies.
