Animation Emphasis

Animation in the Department of Film & Media Arts at the University of Utah emphasizes the integration of critical, historical, theoretical, and practical components of animation studies and production. Our goal is to enable students to develop expertise in the understanding and use of animation and moving images for artistic, social, and pre-professional purposes. Students will not only advance technical knowledge of animation media, but also develop critical views and awareness of animation through historical studies, theoretical analysis, and cross-cultural examination.

As a research hub of higher education, the Department of Film & Media Arts at the University of Utah also promotes interdisciplinary learning and practice in animation. Students are encouraged to take cross-college and campus courses in order to develop an understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of animation media.

Students are encouraged to speak to an academic advisor regularly during their academic careers. To make an appointment with the advisor please visit the College of Fine Arts Academic Advisors page.
