Online Animation & Visual Effects Degree

Academy of Art University’s online animation school is designed to help you set up a professional career in the industry wherever you may be.

The School of Animation & Visual Effects provides a comprehensive online curriculum, supplemented by tools and technology to help students achieve their goals. As an online animation student, you will work with the same expert instructors as your on-site counterparts, ensuring that you will have the same quality of education and hands-on training. You will also be provided the same access to facilities and resources available in our classrooms and studios.

One of the technologies you can look forward to in our online animation school is the Virtual Remote Lab (R-Lab). In this setup, you can use your computer at home to tap into our remote lab on campus and access our robust computer, software, and other tools you may need for your homework and projects. In the R-Lab, what would normally take twelve hours to render in a basic computer set-up would only take one to two, via remote access.

Be part of our vibrant, creative community. Earn your animation degree online at your own pace, in your own time.

How Online Courses Work at the Academy

The Academy provides the coursework—including beautifully produced videos, narrated slideshows, digital documents, interviews with experts, livestreams and more. As you complete assignments, you simply upload your work to the Academy’s custom-designed Learning Management System (LMS) where it’s shared with your class, and your instructor can leave visual markups, video, written and recorded feedback. Online courses at Academy of Art University are offered in 7.5 and 15 week formats.

Your Information Hub

Visual, interactive and dynamic. You will find all your classes, profiles, news, assignments, grades, ESL support, support, and more in the Learning Management System (LMS). All tailored to make your online education rich and engaging.

Your Collaborative Space

Freely exchange thoughts, post work, and provide or receive constructive feedback—just like you would in a campus environment. You and your peers support and push each other, creating long-lasting connections that live beyond the course. You may not be on campus, but you’re not alone.

Your Studio & Gallery

Submit your artwork for evaluation, and if you’d like, include audio, video, and/or written descriptions of the work, and instructors can provide detailed feedback in the same way.
