So whether you want to be a cameraman, or whether you want to be an animator, in the very first classes you'll pick up a camera and shoot, you'll pick up a pencil, or a computer mouse, and you'll animate.
Will I be able to get a job? Do the programs provide job placement services?
The programs do not provide formal job placement services however the Career Services office on campus can assist students (free of charge) with finding employment including resume writing/review, job searches, workshops, interview practice, etc.
