Animation Minor

Why Minor in Animation?

For non-art majors interested in a career in Animation or preparation for graduate study in Animation, the Animation Minor offers broad-based training in this field of art.  The Animation Minor exposes students to a wide range of contemporary and conventional techniques.  These include documentary animation, character animation, stop motion, digitally generated animation, and other emerging technologies.  The minor culminates in a project consisting of an animated film as well as a portfolio presenting the students’ professional and creative work in the field.
