BA in Animation

The new era of digital technology influences everything from short-form animations to feature-length films and an animator is the person who can help span the gap.

An extraordinary animator is one who can successfully integrate content and technique, distinguishing quality animation from a technical exercise.

Students pursuing an Animation degree learn these core principles and techniques, storytelling skills for short and long-form animations and the expression of those stories using current digital animation tools.

Animation students must submit, for review and approval, a petition to proceed with their Senior Overview. The petition must include a preliminary design document, story treatment and preliminary storyboards.

Graduates from the School of Communications have gone on to help animate portions of "King Kong," "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow," and all three installments of "The Lord of the Rings."
