VANCOUVER—October 13, 2015—The Vancouver Animation School (VANAS) has announced a new degree pathway with Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECUAD). Students at VANAS taking any of the three diploma programs will receive credits to be transferred to ECUAD bachelor’s degrees.

After graduating from a diploma program at VANAS, students will have the option to enter the workforce or to pursue a degree at ECUAD. Where Emily Carr University has established the best degree pathway based on the VANAS diploma and students future careers.

VANAS founder Mario Pochat said, “We are very pleased with the relationship with Emily Carr, our mandate is not only to expand our academic offerings for our students, but to expand them along our targeted and focused mindset within Art + Design in Vancouver, Canada. Our students will benefit for all that VANAS, ECUAD and Vancouver have to offer as a powerful combination and hub for the animation, visual effects, video game and technology industries.”

VANAS offers specialized diploma programs suited for the animation, visual effects and video game industries. The three main streams are “3D Computer Character Animation”, “Concept Art” and “Digital Matte Painting”. Each diploma program focuses on specific and feasible career titles that students can achieve in their industry of interest and does not require students to take elective classes so that they can focus completely on their strengths and interests.

Pochat said, “We believe in education for employment, in teaching innovative skills focused on artists’ strengths that lead to creative careers resulting in personal and professional fulfillment.”

This articulation agreement comes right after VANAS established a joint program with IBERO Americana Puebla, one of the biggest art and design schools in Mexico.
