  The Department of Art's Computer Animation program approaches animation from a fine arts context,
emphasizing creativity and experimentation along with technical ability. Our courses focus on principles of animation, character development, narrative and non-narrative formats, and interactivity. The program prepares graduates to pursue careers in film, video production, advertising, game production, educational media, and fine art.

As part of the Department of Art, students within the Computer Animation program receive a degree with a Fine Arts emphasis (BFA). All art majors will spend a semester in the W.A.S.H. (Workshop in Art Studio and History) program, which emphasizes contemporary and collaborative art practices. All art majors also take courses in Drawing, Sculpture, Painting, and Art History. In addition to the courses within the Computer Animation curriculum, students in our program also take courses in the History of Animation, Photography, Video/Performance Art, Web Design, and Computer Programming.
