BA (Hons) Animation & Games Art

General

Program Description

Animation and Games are two of the fastest-growing industries in the world which will increasingly feature in our everyday lives. With technological development at the stage they are today, it proves impossible to tell truth from fiction.

The film, games and VFX industries are always searching for new talent. BA (Hons) Animation and Games Art will allow you to explore the pre-production pipeline and be able to apply animation to a wide range of media. You will study and develop traditional animation techniques, plus key digital skills in 2D and 3D, while learning the core principles of character-led animation.

We place animation and game design within a broader context of principles and theories of design, and you will gain an overall knowledge of design that keeps your career options wide open. You will also have the creative freedom and flexibility to develop your specific areas of interest, gaining transferable skills crucial to employability.

Teaching is almost entirely practical and studio-based, supported by lectures, seminars and tutorials. Our academic team encourage you to express ideas and push the boundaries of creativity. Assessment is mainly through coursework. In your final year, you will prepare for your Degree Show which will be visited by industry experts and potential employers.
