The Boss Baby, Smurfs: The Lost VillageFerdinandThe Lego MovieThe Tale of The Princess Kaguya, Mass Effect: Andromeda ... Animation is everywhere and it’s getting better every year. 

From motion graphics to 3D Sculpting, animation is at the forefront of our visual culture. If you find yourself laying awake at night dreaming of that next project, you’ll find an avenue for those creative talents right here at HUAZ. 

"What sets Huntington apart from other universities is the environment. I instantly felt at home and I enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with passionate peers." – Briana Valenzuela, Class of 2022

As an animation student you will be immersed in this expanding art form. You’ll study the foundation of art while exploring and surrounding yourself with what animation is and what it can do. You will be taught the skills needed to not merely survive in this culture, but to thrive.

The Skills to Succeed

The focus of the animation program is on imagemotion, and character.

As the technology continues to evolve, these principles hold true. That’s why they are the core of HUAZ’s animation program.

Yes, you’ll learn how to use all the cool animation tools, but you’ll also experience the raw power of true storytelling, learn what it takes to develop a memorable character, and hone your skills as a creator.
