Motion Design incorporates a broad array of disciplines including vector graphics, collage/multi-media animation, stop motion animation, live action green screen and compositing, visual effects, typography animation, 3D animation, motion tracked animation, particle animation, etc. Many Motion Designers move into professional roles later in life that include art director, creative director, and other positions. Many digital natives prefer to design for the screen and the world they have grown up in.

Motion Design is included in the Design curriculum to ensure that all students are prepared for the increased pressure on designers to be familiar with motion graphics animation. All sophomore Design Majors take Motion 1 + Motion 2 before the choose their area of concentration in Graphic Design or Interactive Design.
