If you're interested in exploring the field of computer animation and effects, here is a short list of schools (U.S. and Canada only) that offer relevant courses and degree programs. These schools typically cover education in both the artistic and technical areas of computer graphics and may focus on one aspect. Knowledge in both areas is necessary to be a PDI animator.

PDI does not necessarily endorse any of these institutions or their programs. This list is by no means complete; be sure to check for university and college programs at your local library or resource center. Please be advised that as this field continues to grow and mature, education will continue to meet those demands.
