MA 3D Animation for Film & Games in Cologne

The students of the new intermedia Master’s program »3D Animation for Film & Games« expand their pre-existing know-how with a rich set of methodical, theoretical and design-practical skills, thus obtaining the necessary competencies to supervise and manage artistic-academic or artistic-commercial projects independently. In this context, the teaching of general animation literacy – with regard to a constantly expanding work area between linear and non-linear products – is as important as the training of specialized skills related to the complete 3D process. The program is hosted together with the renowned Cologne Game Lab of TH Köln. The program is held in English.
