Animation Production


Effective 1 June 2019 through 31 May 2020

Please see the Undergraduate Catalog Archives for PDF versions of past catalogs.

18 Credit Hours

This program is offered by the School of Communications/Electronic and Photographic Media Department, and is only available at the St. Louis home campus.

For information on the general requirements for a minor, see Minor under the Academic Policies and Information section of this catalog.

The minor in animation production is designed to give students from all academic disciplines within the university an opportunity to explore the basic principles, theory and practice of animation. Students will have the freedom to take a wide range of animation classes to supplement the core requirements. 

No course counted toward a major can also count toward a minor. If a student pursues a minor that requires a course also required for the student's major, the student should contact his or her advisor or the department chair to discuss an appropriate substitution.

Students may choose to receive the minor or the certificate in animation production, but not both.
