3-D Animation

Two crucial components in advertising, education and entertainment are animated characters and environments. The Graduate Certificate in 3-D Animation offers a practice-oriented approach to the art and science of animation, with a particular emphasis on the special requirements of 3-D modeling and animating for the game industry. While using industry-standard animation applications, students are exposed to the visual principles of lighting, modeling and surfacing, motion, and special effects compositing. Students have an opportunity to develop their powers of visualization through coursework that emphasizes not just the how-tos but the compelling whys of visual narrative.

NOTE: All certificate classes are full credit-bearing graduate courses. Certificate students can apply them directly to the Masters degree if they choose to continue in the program.
