CREATIVE COMPUTING (ANIMATION) BSc (Hons)

Overview 

We teach you core skills essential to animation and digital creativity, including software development (C languages, Java), asset creation (Adobe, Autodesk) and web app deployment (HTML5, JavaScript, PHP).

These technical elements are complemented by critical insights into animation from industry specialists. Specific Animation modules uncover the nuances of compelling character design, scripting, storyboarding, image-making, collaborative working and showreel compilation. You’ll explore how animation is used to grab attention, communicate effectively, improve understanding and make a lasting impression.

You can choose which optional modules to study, to suit your interests and career aspirations.

Course Structure

Year one
Master the basics. Start your journey through Creative Computing (Animation) by developing key skills in computing and digital design. We provide an induction to computer science (binary, hardware, operating systems, networking) and probe the social and ethical consequences that are distinct to the digital age. Weekly tech workshops expose you to the basics of web development, physical computing (Arduino, Raspberry Pi) and object-oriented programming. Specific modules on creative problem solving, interface design and coding for the visual arts enrich your understanding of how creativity and computing combine.

Year two
Begin to specialise. We teach you principles of animation and digital storytelling, through reviewing compelling content and a set of experimental skills workshops. You’ll encounter practical aspects of 2D/3D asset creation, keyframing, blocking and lines of action, while also considering the creative strategies and marketing decisions deployed by commercial animation studios. Your animation-specific learning is accompanied with an in-depth 'code lab' that spotlights the C programming languages.

Elective modules provide space to improve programming literacy, interface with creative companies, and experiment with some of the latest consumer grade interactive devices.

Year three
Kickstart your career. You’ll enhance your animation knowledge while setting yourself up for success in the tech / creative industries. Two thirds of your time is spent developing significant digital artefacts. These works become the showcase pieces of a compelling, industry-focused creative portfolio.

Optional modules target interdisciplinary collaboration, professional development and enterprise engagement.

Study Mode - four years full time with professional placement year. (RTFF)

Job Opportunity Potential

We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:

  • Exploring your options
  • Gaining valuable experience
  • Progressing your ideas and career plans

At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.

We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
