Program Description

This certificate program provides an introduction to professional training in digital animation production for students interested in a career in the film and entertainment industry. In this program, students work alongside professionals using cutting edge equipment and technologies, while learning how to put together an animation project from the ground up.

Because courses are offered on a block schedule, it is recommended that the student enrolls in three or more major courses each term. Course content includes sound, editing, design and business concepts in the motion picture and recording industries.

Students work cooperatively with those enrolled in concurrent courses to complete extensive production projects outside of regular class meetings. These projects follow the professional model for production.
