What makes an animation school program “the best” may be something different for students than the nation’s top ranking agencies. For example, many students think a low cost, conveniently located school is the best school, while college ranking agencies say student selectivity and faculty resources are more important than cost or convenience. College ranking agencies use other common considerations when evaluating the best schools, such as the number (and variety) of program offerings, graduation and retention rates, financial resources, and peer assessment.
There are more than 70 accredited colleges and universities in the state of Louisiana. Many of these institutions scored high in the areas listed, so they made it onto many “best of” lists. Some of the best Louisiana schools even offer programs for aspiring animators and other digital artists. While many of the best Louisiana animation schools can be found in major cities such as New Orleans and Baton Rouge, others can also be found in small cities such as Hammond and Thibodaux. Just a few of the best animation schools in Louisiana include the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond.
