Program Overview

Program Description:
SCAD has been named among the world’s top animation schools and among the “Ivy League of Animation” by 3D World magazine. Within the School of Film, Digital Media and Performing Arts, SCAD animation students have opportunities to collaborate with others in visual effects, sound design and film. The M.A. program provides advanced skills-based learning within a context of broadening students' awareness of animation storytelling. The M.F.A. program allows students to explore, in greater depth, areas of animation theory and specialization. Animation students can select from an extensive range of electives to develop skills in specialized areas such as 2-D and 3-D character animation, stop motion animation, digital modeling, rigging, lighting and look development. Students learn on the same tools used throughout the industry: Autodesk Maya; Adobe CS5 Master Collection (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash and Premiere); and Toon Boom Pencil Check, Storyboard and Animate Pro. Resources include a Vicon motion capture system. M.A. and M.F.A. degrees in animation are offered at SCAD Atlanta and SCAD Savannah.
