Our Design Department believes that design is more than just aesthetics; it’s also the ability to apply what they learn in the classroom in order to better their communities, not only as designers, but as global citizens. Our Animation/Illustration students often work with high school programs and give talks to younger students who visit SJSU. Listed below are some of the partnerships our Animation/Illustration Design students were able to take part in as designers to meaningful community improvement.
Visiting Animation & Illustration
Zoom visits to the program are available one Friday each month at 10 am and must be scheduled in advance.
