Kent State Stark Offers New Major for Fall 2010Posted Jun. 24, 2010
Students pursuing a career in the fast-growing fields of computer animation and game design are now able to take advantage of Kent State University at Stark’s new computer design, animation and game design concentration within the bachelor of science in technology degree.
The major will be available in the fall 2010 semester, beginning August 30, and can be completed entirely at Kent State Stark through in-person courses, web-based sections or a hybrid of the two, based on availability. Students who have completed coursework for a directly related associate degree may earn the bachelor’s degree at the Stark Campus with an additional two years of full-time enrollment.
The program combines theories of visual creation with digital imaging, motion capture, multimedia, computer animation and film production. Students earning credit toward this major will practice modern techniques and artistic applications, such as designing in virtual environments, computer-aided design (CAD), modeling and game design, and courses on 2D, 3D and experimental animations. The newest of Kent State Stark’s 15 majors, the program will give students the skills and academic knowledge necessary to obtain positions in modeling and technical illustration, as well as computer animation, artistic production, game design, exhibition and broadcast.
