Animation is everywhere – cartoons, movies, and television, on billboards and Jumbotrons, in classrooms and museums, in health care settings, simulators and courtrooms. As a consequence of its ubiquity, students who turn toward animation will find not only an interdisciplinary outlet for their creative impulse but one that also positions them well for graduate study or careers as animation artists in film or television.
