For the animation program specifically, there is a lot of value associated with our degree. The program is highly esteemed, and there are a lot of opportunities for students to break into the industry. Not only does the faculty have experience in the field, they also have a lot of connections to those still working in the industry, and many big industry professionals are graduates of our program. There is also a Co-op semester where most students spend a summer working in a studio, allowing them to gain studio experience and contacts in the field. We have a lot of visiting artists who come to the school, usually allowing students to get feedback on their work, especially for the senior students, and we have an industry day for the graduating class where industry professionals come to the school to hire the grads.
