About

Video games, animated movies, special effects, motion graphics, and even architectural renderings all depend on the work of animators. The Bachelor of Science degree in Animation at Middle Tennessee State University helps students learn how to bring their ideas to life on the screen. 

Overview

Students begin with traditional art and animation techniques and progress through advanced digital tools and techniques, and theory used by major animation studios for films, television, video games, and more. 

This Bachelor of Science degree in Animation at Middle Tennessee State University provides students the opportunity to prepare for careers in 3-D animation, 2-D animation, motion graphics, and special visual effects. MTSU’s Animation program gives students hands-on opportunities from their first semester. In addition to supplemental classes, students take a six-semester sequence of courses (fall and spring) focused in 3D animation. The final two semesters of the six-semester sequence culminate in a two-semester capstone experience in which each student creates a project of their own design to serve as a primary item in their creative portfolios.
