Program description

Digital Animation BA (Hons)

Digital Animation explores the changing face of a popular art form: bringing images to life.

You'll explore the fundamentals of animation practice within the latest technological advances and trends, and, over the three years, learn core skills that will aid you in becoming an employable graduate.

These fundamental skills will include drawing, image making crafts, computer graphics, stop-frame animation, coding, 3D modelling, 2D motion graphics and compositing.

You will test these skills through a variety of modern applications such as outdoor projection, virtual reality, augmented reality, film, TV, online video, computer games, the web and mobile apps.

The combination of these technical skills with research into the contexts, history and theory of animation and narrative practice will ensure both practical ability and critical literacy in our Digital Animation graduates.
