In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses. This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in April 2017 to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.From blockbuster movies to multi-million-dollar video franchises, computer animation is a big business, which is why the Computer Animation Arts course at Bournemouth University is second to none. Not only will we cultivate your artistic passion, but our expert lecturers will provide you with an education in theory and design principles, as well as giving you practical experience in the production of computer animation and visual effects.As well as developing your creative talents, this course will encourage you to examine the aesthetic qualities behind computer animation and show you how to utilise this in your work. It’s this unique blend of theory, design and production that makes this course stand out, as it provides you with all of the knowledge and hands-on experience you need to get ahead in the field of computer animation and visual effects, whether you want to focus on feature film, games or animation.
