Media Arts & AnimationDegree Programs

I want to create my own future.

All kinds of industries—beyond just entertainment and media—need creative minds to bring ideas to life. Animators. 3D animators. Multimedia artists. Special Effects artists. Along with others, they put their skills and imaginations to work everywhere from film and TV to medicine and law. If you have the talent, passion, and tenacity to follow that career path, our Media Arts & Animation degree programs can prepare you for a life of doing what you love. In our creative and supportive environment, you’ll use industry-specific hardware and software in an environment that’s as challenging and competitive as the real world. You’ll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be pushed, challenged, and, above all else, supported by experienced faculty*. It won't be easy. But nothing truly worthwhile ever is.

I'm ready to start telling stories.

Our Media Arts & Animation Program will truly put you to the test. It was designed by industry experts to help put you in a position to succeed in field where the only limit is your imagination. You’ll work with the same kinds of technology professionals use as you study everything from Cinematic Storytelling to Computer 3D Modeling and Animation.
