Job Description:
The Media Arts Department of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design seeks dynamic and engaging candidates for two full time faculty positions in the Animation Program, rank commensurate with experience. Positioned within Media Arts along with Photography, Film, and Web & Multimedia, MCAD’s Animation BFA provides students with a broad historical perspective, fostering an appreciation of animation as an applied and fine art.

Animation Program Description:
MCAD’s Animation program provides a broad introduction to multiple conceptual, technical and material approaches as well as a variety of advanced classes focusing on different disciplines and techniques for utilizing animation to tell stories. The success of this approach is reflected in the fact that Animation is the largest of the four areas in the Media Arts department and is currently the fastest and growing major at MCAD. Students are exposed to both 2D and 3D classical and experimental animation techniques. After completing foundation requirements, students are encouraged to collaborate as well as focus on their individual work through core curriculum courses, intensive workshops, experimental studios, client collaborations and internships. Graduates of the Animation program are ideally equipped to move into the professional world with conceptual and technical skills in the visual staging and communication of ideas.
