If you’re an aspiring animator, you probably already know that there are hundreds of animation schools across the U.S. Some are free standing, while others are part of a larger art school, technical school, or traditional college. Most of these schools are accredited and many definitely have what it takes to help you start your animation career. The question is, are some animation schools better than others? Bloggers, college ranking agencies, alums, and many students think so, which is why they often create lists of the “best” schools or the “top schools” in the nation.
