I'm looking for a degree or major that most positions like at Blizzard or Pixar are looking for to do 3D work. I'm certainly not looking to work for THEM anytime soon, but companies like them.
What degree would constitute a job doing 3D animation or Digital Artwork of some kind for a company such as these?
Currently I'm going to school for a BS in Computer Science.
Does a degree not matter as much, like I've heard a portfolio and an interview is where it really counts.
I'm basically looking to get a degree that can have me not working freelance and still be working with computers and art in some capacity for a company
I've looked at some of Blizzard's offerings here -> http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company...tml?id=12000D3
They suggest majoring in game design and applying for a job as a level designer.
Just post any degree titles or majors you think people like this would be looking for I'm open to all suggestions.
Has anyone ever heard of DigiPen? -> https://www.digipen.edu/academics/
their degree BFA in Digital Art and Animation sounds really interesting, anyone have any experience with them?
Thanks in advance for your input!
