Bachelor of Media Arts - 2D and Experimental Animation Major Emily Carr University of Art and Design




Course info


As a digital media practitioner and artist you will be well positioned to contribute and lead creatively and effectively through one of four focused paths of study and majors: 2D & Experimental Animation, 3D Computer Animation, Film + Screen Arts or New Media + Sound Arts.

With a Bachelor of Media Arts degree, you will have the skills and confidence for conceptual risk-taking in one of the fastest growing art forms in the world. As an animator you will work in 2D or 3D animation, games, visual effects for motion pictures, and independent shorts or animation films. Or, combine your creative problem solving and digital communications skills with experimentation in media and computer technology, to become a leader in technical and conceptual practices for social media, web, and software. As a media arts school, Emily Carr University is uniquely positioned in the industry as the only interdisciplinary institution dedicated entirely to creativity.

Animation brings art to life.

If animation is your art and passion, Emily Carr is the ideal place to develop the conceptual and practical skills to create dynamic animated stories that captivate audiences around the world.

The 2D & Experimental Animation Major at Emily Carr University of Art + Design embraces diverse animation media and crafting practices. Students develop as creative animation designers and critical thinkers. Forms of narrative storytelling are explored through the art of classical animation, using both traditional and digital drawing methods. Experimental animation includes media such as stop-motion puppets, cut-outs, paint-on-glass and motion graphics. Critical analysis and comprehension of animation arts involves writing, history, and media studies.

Emily Carr Animation students engage with an in-depth study of animation principles, design, character development, story and production techniques that expose them to every aspect of animation production. Students create two major film projects in both 3rd and 4th years, both of which come from their own directorial vision and efforts. These rigorous projects reflect an animator and artist that is developing robust comprehension and flexible skill sets for the complete animation production process. This model of education experience is unique in Canada, and prepares individuals for employment in various animation, visual effects, and cultural industries.
