Animation is the process of creating the illusion of motion through a variety of techniques. The 15-credit minor in Animation prepares students to understand the various types of digital 2D motion graphics (which focus on image manipulation) and 3D computer animation (which takes place in virtual worlds) and their uses. The flexibility of this minor allows students to target their area of interest whether it is commercial style motion graphics, special effects, or 3D character animation.
