Animation, A.S.


The Associate in Science in Animation is designed as a transfer program in the rapidly growing field of animation, including the areas of feature film production, television production, independent short-film production, video game design, advertising, and more. Emphasis is placed on creative avenues for problem solving-skills, leadership, personal expression, and solid foundational animation and art skills. Industry-standard and innovative traditional and digital techniques are introduced, all within the historical framework of accepted principles of animation and cinematography.
