What are the best Arkansas colleges for animation?
Who gets in and who doesn’t, program selection, and financial resources are just a few of the factors involved in deciding which animation school programs will earn a spot on any given “Best Animation Programs” list. College ranking agencies evaluate traditional colleges, art schools, and technical schools, based on these factors (and others), in order to create a diverse list of the best animation school programs. Fortunately, there are plenty to choose from no matter where you live!>
Because the animation industry is growing once again, many schools have increased their offerings or added majors for animators and other digital artists. In Arkansas, where Hollywood productions such as True Grit and The Last Ride have been filmed, several animation school programs stand out. The schools offering these programs scored high in the areas that matter most to ranking agencies. These include student selectivity, faculty resources, financial resources, number (and variety) of program offerings, graduation and retention rates, and peer assessment.
