  2. Thanks to technological advancements and changes to consumer tastes and expectations, employers are crying out for designers who can fuse artistic talent with technological knowledge, our Animation course meets this need.

    This degree focuses on motion graphics and animation from a design perspective and their applications in film, television, computer games, advertising and new media. Animation Design is becoming increasingly important and a more widely used medium for traditional design and new media agencies, as advertising is increasingly multi-platform, moving and screen based.
