Minnesota is home to a number of excellent art & design schools, including animation schools. Some are new to the scene and may have only a few hundred students while others are part of a traditional university where the student body may consist of thousands. No matter what type of animation school you choose, the method for reaching your decision is common among many ambitious but cash-strapped students. Your decision may be based on factors such as tuition cost, convenience (will I need a car or can I take public transit?), or the school’s job placement record.
