Motion designers belong at Villa! Alongside our award-winning faculty, students become the artists they have always admired. Students who want to turn passion into profession prosper within the walls of Villa Maria’s Main Building and within the greater Western New York Community. Here, you’ll learn to add your unique creative flair to everything that comes across your desk. It’s your first stop on a never-ending – but always exciting – journey to be the best designer you can be.
The Career Potential
Graduates of Villa Maria College’s Motion Design program will have earned a degree that is in high demand and exceptionally versatile. As the demand for realistic graphics continues to increase, so too will the need for practiced, creative, and competent designers with a skillset that allows them to create dynamic content for video games, television, movies, mobile, special effects, and more. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the employment of motion designers will continue to grow until at least 2029.

There’s a lot of pressure to know what’s next. We’re here to say, it’s OK if you’re still figuring it out. In fact, it’s great. Villa is a place where that kind of continual discovery is prized. Because going to college isn’t about having it all figured out. It’s about inventing who you’re going to become. You’ll see.
