Contribute your vision to the world. Learn the foundations and practice of animation, from character design to top-end computer graphics and 3D graphics.
At Lipscomb, you'll grow your creative skills under some of the most prominent animators in the U.S., including Tom Bancroft and John Pomeroy. You’ll connect with and learn from experts in Maya software, the industry standard in computer graphics and CGI effects. You’ll even have the option of taking on opportunities in Los Angeles — our department’s Los Angeles internship program as well as a yearly trip to work at an animation studio there.

Gain valuable experience in a faith-based community that will set you up for a meaningful career in animation — one filled with creativity, integrity and innovation, and driven by the desire to make a difference.

“It is a personal mandate that our instructors are busy working within the animation industry so that we are teaching from industry learned truths and using the same up-to-date programs and tech we use at home while working with the biggest studios and characters in the world. To prove this, Lipscomb can claim it is the only school in the world to have two former Disney supervising animators as instructors.” —Tom Bancroft, Artist in Residence
