The B.S. in Animation is designed for students who will aggressively pursue a career in computer animation. The animation program concentrates on drawing, the fundamentals of motion, 3D design, collaborative work, and personal portfolio development. The curriculum focuses on computer-generated (CG) animation to develop professional skills for working in the animation industry and for graduate school placement. A student who develops the required working skills for character animation can pursue careers in visual effects, videogame art, and commercial animation. Two concentrations are offered: Character Animation and Effects Animation. In the Character Animation concentration, animators will develop advanced skills in animation performance, movement, story development, and acting. Animators in the Effects Animation concentration focus on 3D design, character setup, motion graphics, visual effects animation, compositing, and rendering techniques.
