Art and Design at Missouri State

BFA Four-Year Degree Plan: Animation

The first priority in scheduling ANY classes is identifying when is the earliest possible semester candidacy review can be undertaken. Once the semester for candidacy review is targeted, fill in the blanks with required classes according to the following table of priorities. This schedule reflects most students' desire to complete the degree within four years- other options are available.

This is a competitive degree - you may or may not be accepted - which will delay indefinitely successful completion of this degree! It is important to stay in contact with your advisor and ask questions! Be proactive in your own advising!

The course schedule is a tentative plan for future semesters. These courses and modalities are subject to change based on available faculty.
