HFC VTL Alumni and Student Success Information

Students in Animation, Telecommunications, and related disciplines are encouraged to take the Visual Effects Certificate while pursuing the Associate in Arts Degree. The Certificate is designed to be taken with a fall start for three sequential semesters. Because of equipment limitations and extended learning curves required for certificate software, 12 students move through the cycle at a time.
