Computer Animation, BFA


The BFA degree in Computer Animation is offered as a professional degree. The educational experience and subsequent body of work reflect three areas of success in the animation profession: (a) a capstone animated film created in a collaborative, team-oriented setting, (b) an animated short created as a solo thesis project, and (c) additional courses in critical studies, story, advanced CG animation, and the technical facility that seeks to prepare students for immediate entry into the professional world.

Submission Guidelines

Students can apply to be accepted into the BFA program once they have earned 45 credit hours. Each student must submit a brief document stating their intention to apply for the BFA along with their projected future goals. They will then participate in an advising session and provide a portfolio for review, which should include examples of all department course and project work completed to date. The review will be conducted by the coordinators of the Animation Program along with invited faculty from the Cinema Art and Science Department.
