Why study Animation?

All students will begin with a solid foundation of introductory level animation skills. As they move through the certificate, they will add to this support through exercises and assignments. These build upon each other, making a stronger animator.

As the program continues, the student will learn about acting and the finer attributes to becoming a production animator.

Finally, the students will be introduced to the working world of animation including co-ops and internships all over the world.
