The San José State University Animation/Illustration program is consistently ranked as one of the premier university programs in the nation. Originally conceived to give local students a chance to compete for careers in the screen arts, the program now attracts students nationally and internationally.

The BFA in Animation/Illustration is a highly impacted program, which means we have far more applicants and students than we can accommodate. Students wishing to pursue a major in Animation/Illustration need to apply directly to the Art/BFA Animation/Illustration when applying to SJSU.
