This program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in 3D Animation and Visual Effects. The program enables the discovery, stimulation, development and demonstration of students’ true creative potential within the context of a real 3D production situation. Students will also experience stimulating creation and production situations similar to those found in the industry. At the end of the program, students will have created a professional portfolio of their work in digital creation, according to industry standards and using the full potential of the latest technologies.
Prospective students must possess appropriate and relevant experience as determined by the Animation and Visual Effects advisor and complete the Coastal Alabama Application process.
This is a career program designed for students to go directly into the labor market upon completion. Although some of the courses in this program will transfer to four-year institutions, this program is not designed to be a transfer program of study; therefore, it is not subject to the terms and conditions of STARS.
