What is a BA in Animation? This program of study can take many forms but typically focuses on working with the medium, form, and content of animated storytelling. Perfect for creative students interested in refining their art into usable skills, coursework can include topics such as composition, perspective, character gesture, stop-motion, and both cutout and hand-drawn design. Additionally, many programs include courses in the history of animation and cinema, as well as animation writing.

Graduates with a degree in animation have a highly specific yet desirable skill set. The ability to present and explain work is as valuable in an office as it is in a showroom. Similarly, creative thinking and analyzing information give graduates an edge in problem-solving.

Not all bachelor’s degree programs cost the same amount. Fees can vary depending on a variety of factors including the length of study and the specific college or university. Doing research on program costs can help prospective students make the right decision in applying.

Career opportunities for students with a Bachelor of Arts in Animation include jobs both inside the art world and out. While positions like illustrators, character animators, and game artists are a natural fit, the skills learned through an art degree can be put to use in nearly every sector. From market researcher to medical equipment designer, to police or courtroom artist, art degree graduates work in a variety of positions. Nearly anywhere in the world, there are positions available to utilize the skills gained from a BA in Animation.
