Animation and Gaming, Certificate of Achievement (C)
The Animation& Gaming curriculum develops students’ aesthetic and technical competence by providing training with professional software in production processes. The program builds a foundation in 3D Animation, production and Game development for entertainment, serious games and simulations.
Our courses give students a core background in visual arts and screen design, providing also technical skills in media development, production and distribution.
The program prepares students for employment in entry-level positions at Game development firms or for transfer to media programs at 4-year institutions.
