rom implementing crowd scenes in a movie or television commercial to creating vast landscapes for a video game, artists use computer graphics in nearly every aspect of today’s entertainment industry.

Full Sail University’s Computer Animation bachelor of science degree program guides students through the same production pipeline used in professional studios – from storyboarding, sketching, and visual development to modeling, character animation, and final compositing.

Our computer animation programs begin by exploring the art concepts behind drawing, sculpting, and other traditional forms of expression. As you prepare to take your artwork from page to screen, you'll also learn the foundational animation principles behind computer-generated characters, objects, and environments.

Courses focusing on relevant topics such as storytelling and communication are designed to further round out your skill set, and ongoing portfolio courses provide you with opportunities to showcase your talents and develop your professional skills. In addition, our Career Development services will be available for support throughout your entire professional journey.
