A course in college or university is a class that focuses on one specific area of study within the broader range of a subject. Similar to high school classes, a course will have one or two instructors and a fixed roster of students.

What is a course in computer animation? Computer animation is a process that is used for creating moving animated images. A course would involve learning about animation and its history in film, motion graphics, and character design. Virtual environments, advanced 3D computer graphics, and FX techniques for television and movies, all centered around digital creation, would be taught in the course using hands-on methods.

Students learning about computer animation may acquire valuable skills during the course, which may be useful in many other areas of life, even beyond higher education. Confidence in their abilities, design knowledge, and versatility can be assets when pursuing many different kinds of careers.

A full course in computer animation will take about three years, but more specific and specialized courses may only take six months. The enrollment and registration fees will vary between the different colleges and universities offering the courses. Contact the schools that interest you most for more pricing information.

Computer animation is becoming more and more involved in all kinds of industries, providing a wide swath of career opportunities that extend even beyond media and advertising. A career in multimedia art, 3D animation, storyboard art, animated Web design, graphic art, and 3D modeling are just a few of the options that implement the skills and techniques taught when learning and mastering computer animation.
