3 out of 5
Degree: Design and Visual Communications, General
Graduation Year: 2014

I studied Bachelor of Science in Visualization, which is an all encompassing visual arts degree. The program has 3 tracks: 3D Animation, Graphic Design, and Game Design. Many Viz Aggies have gone on to study their Masters degree in Viz and subsequently entered internships with Pixar, Dreamworks, Blue Sky and Disney. During my time at A&M, the Viz program was still new and developing. A lot of my curriculum wasn't very well structured, and we were guinea pigs for a lot of the classes. There were many required classes that I had no use for down my career path in visual arts/animation (Coding/programming, engineering physics etc), but were there to round out my education. I will say the professors and the advisors were very kind, helpful, and excellent instructors/guides. There were lots of opportunities to network with different clubs, different symposiums and an end of the semester art show to display your best work. It is definitely a fun but also difficult major, with lots of projects crammed into the same deadline (think architecture students) lots of presenting, with some group projects occasionally. There is also a required study abroad semester, which I thoroughly enjoyed and do not regret (Despite the high price tag). It really opened my eyes to the world and made me fall in love with Europe. I have heard of lower income students receive financial aid to go.
