Many different colleges offer degrees in topics desirable for this career. When researching, I found two colleges not just suitable for different degrees you would need but also location relative to what is good for me. Because my grandparents live in NYC, these two colleges are not only in the top 20 for Multimedia Artists and Animators, but I could live with my grandparents instead of paying for dorm. The Pratt Institute for Art is a good college, and depending on the course you take, is about $44,000 annually. Parsons school of Art and Design is not as good for animators, but it is only about $21,000 per year.
