Why choose this course?
The Integrated Masters gives you the opportunity to deepen into your professional practice after the BA. This new specialised Animation programme will transform your passion for bringing characters to life, storytelling and moving images into exciting projects. This new course aims to train future versatile creatives in the art of the moving image.
During the first year of the BA (Hons) you will learn the principles of visual communication and drawing, to apply them to character design, background design, storyboarding and scene layout. You will explore the principles of animation with a focus on 2D techniques. The second year will involve you in an informative motion graphic project working in teams for an exterior collaborator. You will practice character animation using 3D techniques to build up a show reel. The third year will allow you to specialise and develop a final degree project.
You will finish your studies with the professional skills and creative thinking strategies to apply for jobs in studios, work as a freelance artist, start your own studio or apply for post-graduate studies. You will be part of a vibrant collaborative learning community formed by enthusiastic artists.
If you do not wish to apply for the Integrated Masters' level, you may choose to study this course as a three year degree
