What Can You Do with an Animation Degree?

Radek, what jobs can you get with an animation degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with an animation degree?

A degree in animation can lead in several directions, including entertainment, education, graphic design, advertising, industrial design, computer systems design, public relations, marketing, and video games. Animators and animation artists work on movies, multimedia educational tools and games, marketing tools, commercials, video games, computer games, and more. New technologies will continue to lead to new opportunities, and it doesn’t appear as though America has any intention of losing interest in animation.

It’s not surprising that those willing to live in California will have the most job opportunities in this field.
