"SJSU not only gave me a great education in art and design but helped me understand who I was as a designer and how best to apply my skills to an entertainment industry I did not understand before enrolling in the program. I was so pleased with my time at SJSU, that I hope to get my oldest child into the illustration/animation program as they too are looking to find a career in art and design after high school."

The Animation & Illustration program at SJSU was essential in providing me with the tools I needed to succeed as an animator and filmmaker. The program was challenging, but the support system that the faculty and my peers provided was incredibly helpful in allowing me to grow both as an artist and as a person throughout my time there. I would highly recommend the SJSU Animation/Illustration program to anyone looking to pursue a career in the entertainment industry."
