Overview
The Computer Animation curriculum is centered on real-world production processes. From storyboarding, sketching, and visual development to modeling, character animation, and final compositing, this Computer Animation curriculum takes you through the entire production pipeline. Our programs start by familiarizing you with the art concepts behind animation, drawing, sculpting, and other traditional forms of expression, which are essential parts of getting your art onto the computer. You will also learn the foundational principles behind computer-generated models, characters, animation, and compositing. Then you will apply those principles when developing films, TV shows, commercials, and games. By using the same hardware and software as professional animation studios, you will gain the skills you will need when you embark on your career. You will also have courses focusing on physical science, mythology, communication skills, and how to prepare yourself for the animation industry.
Objective
Bachelor's Objective  Our goal is to provide you with the focused knowledge and understanding of 3-D modeling and digital animation needed to qualify for such entry-level industry positions as scene builders, character artists, technical directors, motion animators, texture artists, lighters, and renderers. Besides the program’s strong 3-D computer-graphics focus, you will build other skills in peripheral media and complete digital courses that will enhance your opportunities in related fields. In addition to technical proficiency and creative development, your education will help you develop critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that will contribute to lifelong learning and provide you with tools to help sustain a long and productive professional career in the entertainment and media industries.
