Award BA Honours Degree in Visual Media – Animation (University of Dundee)
The BA in Animation Visual Media is an honours degree validated by the University of Dundee, Scotland. As a twoyear top up course, it is designed to build on the HND in Classical and Computer Animation (CCH). Students are challenged to develop and integrate their creative, technical and academic skills in a structured way, producing both individual and group films.
The course aims to develop in the student a balance between the conceptualist, the artist, the storyteller and the technician. At honours level the learning is largely self-directed. Students produce collaborative animated films, which are screened annually at the Animation and Games Graduate Showcase.
Students applying for the BA in Animation Visual Media should bring to the interview an original portfolio (flat or digital), of artwork completed within the past year demonstrating ability in both figurative and abstract approaches.
