What is an MA in Animation? Animation is the diverse and creative study of visual, moving art. Animators are responsible for developing many well-loved cartoons, films and video games as well as other iconic creations. A degree in animation is structured to inform students on the technologies, techniques and philosophies behind this method of design. An integral part of many modern animation programs is digital media, including web design, special effects and video game production.

Students with a degree in animation often learn to be organized, independent workers. Many employers find that animation students are not only creative but highly analytical. These traits can help make graduates more hirable in the future for a variety of industries.

The cost of earning an MA can depend on the country of the school and the length and type of degree program. Students can find more information about the tuition of these programs by contacting the school admissions office.

Careers in animation are highly competitive, but having an MA in Animation can help graduates secure positions over those with only a bachelor's degree or less. As technology develops, students may also see a growth of jobs available for digital animators. Many students pursue jobs in traditional media like cinema and television, but much work can be found in online arenas as well. Some career positions include digital animator, web designer, digital advertiser, video game designer and more.

Universities across the world offer an MA in Animation. Students can also consider distance learning through online courses that make earning a degree from home possible.

Animation is a dynamic, participatory, and transdisciplinary medium of expression and communication. It finds its application across media and in diverse contexts, be it in short films, art installations, infographics, education, apps, and many more. The modes of production are many and the lines between live-action, animation, and computer-generated imagery have become increasingly blurred. At Srishti Manipal, we consider animation a broad range of practices in manipulated moving images. The animation program is a learning space for self-driven students who are keen on pursuing a line of inquiry and developing their practice in moving-image arts. The MA program provides a framework to support research and the taking forward of one’s practice in animation to newer levels of fluency and sophistication. The curriculum provides strategic inputs in research methods, animation techniques, film language, storytelling, image-making processes, and several opportunities for independent skill enhancement. Students can explore and develop personal styles, artistic visions, and voices depending on their particular lines of inquiry. The focus is on achieving ease and expertise in using the language of animation to pose relevant questions and address diverse topics of interest. -
