The Bachelor of Animation Design focuses on providing applied, real-world skill development with a broad range of intellectual skills. Assignments and class work focus on case studies, simulations and lab projects. Students will be taught by industry professionals, using the same techniques and tools that they will eventually need at the workplace. They will create their own scripts, characters, layouts, and produce their own animated films.

The program offers courses which are designed in collaboration with industry experts and with deployment of state of the art studios. Rigorous instruction in both classical and computer animation will be carried out and the students will be trained in cutting-edge 2D/3D computer animations. Between semesters 6 and 7, students will complete an internship within the industry. The final semester in the program is project-based. The School will provide career connections after year 3 for the students to gain professional experience during a one-month work placement.

The students are required to obtain a minimum of 134 credit hours with a minimum GPA of 2.0 for degree eligibility. These credit hours are distributed over 8 semesters during a period of 4 years.
