The VPA Minor in Animation creates a focus for students interested in animation production. The core requirements of this minor introduce animation techniques, and culminate with a collaborative production course. The elective courses allow students to investigate studies that are critically related to animation, allowing for both broader and/or specific research.


Students interested in this minor should meet with the faculty contact. Prospective students must submit a current transcript, a letter of interest not to exceed 1500 words, and any work in the form of digital media files on CD or DVD that may be related to the minor. There are no absolute requirements in terms of the number of works or GPA. Acceptance into the minor will be made solely by the faculty contact for the minor upon review of application materials. Students need to maintain a 3.0 GPA average in the minor curriculum; otherwise they may be expelled from the minor. Limited to 10 students.
