RIT’s animation program places 13th nationally

The School of Film and Animation at Rochester Institute of Technology ranks No. 13 in the country for animation by Animation Career Review, officials said.

RIT placed 13th nationally, 12th among private schools and colleges, sixth on the East Coast and fourth in New York.

“Graduates of RIT’s animation programs have found employment at top studios such as Disney Animation Studios, Electronic Arts, DreamWorks, Blue Sky Studios, Nickelodeon, Industrial Light and Magic, and Rhythm and Hues Studios,” according to the website.

Referred to as SOFA, the program received high marks for academic reputation; admission selectivity; depth, breadth and faculty; value as it relates to tuition; and geographic location, according to RIT.

SOFA offerings include BFA and MFA degrees in film and animation and a B.S. degree in motion picture science, providing students who attend RIT with one of the broadest curriculum choices in the country.

“All of us in RIT’s School of Film and Animation are proud to again be selected one of the best schools in the country,” said Malcolm Spaull, administrative chair of SOFA in RIT’s College of Imaging Arts and Sciences. “We pride ourselves in our program offerings to give aspiring animators and filmmakers the ability to grow and evolve as both students and creators.”
