We understand that not every student with potential may initially meet these criteria. Hence, we provide an enticing opportunity in the form of a single-semester certificate program, serving as an accessible pathway for aspiring students to embark on their journey toward the full degree.

Motion Design is a dynamic and creative field that seamlessly blends artistry, technology, and storytelling. It provides an imaginative canvas for students, merging their creative ideas with cutting-edge technology, and taking them on a transformative journey from concept to animation. This field caters to students who have a keen interest in both art and technology. It’s the perfect playground for those who enjoy illustrating, crafting videos, and exploring the artistry and creativity inherent in the realms of gaming and video production. Here, students can immerse themselves in the exciting world of content creation, character design, environmental aesthetics, and the captivating art of animation, as they craft visual masterpieces.

At its core, motion design is about conveying narratives through moving images. Students will learn to create engaging stories, be it for brand messages, simplifying complex ideas, or evoking emotions through animation.

Moreover, a degree in motion design equips students with highly marketable skills. These skills are in demand across various industries, including advertising, marketing, entertainment, and education. Potential work opportunities may include crafting advertisements, user-friendly interfaces, or visual effects for films.
