Animation and Illustration, B.F.A.

Formal Acceptance into the Major

During the second year of study, students majoring in the B.F.A. Animation and Illustration are required to complete DES 2950 Design Review. When a student completes Design Review with a passing grade, the student is granted formal acceptance into the B.F.A. major.

Students graduating with a B.F.A. in Animation and Illustration will demonstrate:

  • an ability to work collaboratively and/or independently in solving advanced problems in animation and/or illustration
  • an ability to create effective, professional-level animation and/or illustration projects.
  • a proficiency in the use of appropriate creative tools for specific animation and/or illustration projects.

The Animation and Illustration degree is NEBHE eligible (tuition discount) in Maine, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. But we go better than that with our stackable awards.
