Sure, high enrollment figures may seem attractive to new students, but it takes more than a massive student body to convince college ranking agencies that your school is the “best” school. A number of respected college ranking agencies take a number of common factors into consideration when determining which schools deserve a spot on the list. Factors such as financial resources, program offerings, peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, student selectivity, and faculty resources are high on the list. When it comes to high enrollment figures, most college rankings prefer smaller classes, which is a plus in the “faculty resources” category.
In the state of Maine, there are more than 30 accredited colleges and universities. Many of these schools offer programs for animators, and some agencies rank them among the best. While many of the state’s best animation programs are offered at schools located in Portland—the state’s largest cities, aspiring animators can head over to the tiny town of Rockport to look into the latest certificate programs.
