Course summary

About the course

Animation is a lively and exhilarating medium – it can make us laugh, cry, think and feel in its exploration of inner and outer worlds. It can express events, story and character through light, line and movement. It entertains audiences, whilst raising thought-provoking questions concerning truth, illusion, love, life and death. On the Animation Production BA(Hons) course we’ll help you define your preferred area of interest early on in your studies, and you'll continue to develop your skills throughout.

Why study Animation Production?

  • Have the opportunity to experience many aspects of animation, from mastering existing techniques and technologies to developing something new, supported by specialist tutors and technicians.
  • Collaborate with students across other subjects in art, design and technology to encounter new materials, styles and production processes to inform your own practice.
  • We’ll support you to develop your own visual language whilst learning to be aesthetically and conceptually playful.
  • Gain technical skills to help your ideas take shape though illustration, 3D, film, stop-motion, and kinetic technologies.

The course benefits from a diverse array of industrial, academic and research links which have developed out of the history of animation, illustration, interactive media and design at Huddersfield.

Your career

Courses within the subject area of Art and Design aim to help you to develop the skills needed for roles such as director, producer, art director, storyboard artist, 3D animator/artist, modeller, VFX (visual effects) producer, motion designer, digital designer, advertiser, interaction designer, interface developer, effects/technical director, editor, production co-ordinator and runner.

Graduates of our Animation degree have gone on to senior positions at The Mill, Man vs Machine, TILT (Amsterdam), Brown Bag and Territory Studios.**

We can also support you in developing a career as a freelance artist or designer and in setting up your own company.

Professional links and accreditations

During this course you can benefit from the opportunity to gain the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) accreditation in addition to your degree, at no extra cost. This is a globally recognised accreditation awarded by one of the leading software package providers to the creative industries, so could be valuable in your professional career. This accreditation is attractive to a number of employers and so it could give you a competitive edge in the job market. To be awarded the ACA accreditation, you’ll need to pass an online test.
