The recent advent of dramatic special effects in film, television, and games has created an unprecedented demand for education programs leading to careers in the field. To fill this need, the DPA program offers a unique blend of instruction from art, computer science, computer engineering, graphic communications, performing arts, philosophy and psychology, together with newly designed courses targeted at production techniques specific to the animation effects industry.
