SAN DIEGO, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD, an exciting development in global design education, is pleased to announce the introduction of new programs for the 2014-2015 school year in Animation, Game Art and Game Design. The new programs add to the current offering in Digital Media Arts available at NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NSAD) through the Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD.  Located in a part of the country that has become a strong innovative media and animation industry hub, these new and updated programs have been developed through collaborations with the award-winning Media Design School in Auckland, New Zealand, a leading school in animation and game design with a pool of talent that has contributed to blockbuster films such as Avatar, King Kong and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD emphasizes a curriculum in San Diego that includes industry connections, international experience and interdisciplinary studies – in a state with one of the highest employment numbers and wages in the country for digital media artists and animators, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  Various industry reports have also identified continued industry growth in these sectors due to increased demand for animation and visual effects in video games, movies and television and as well as for computer graphics in mobile devices.

"We are thrilled to be collaborating with Media Design School to help students develop digital arts skills for the global design marketplace, and we believe that San Diego's proximity to major film and technology industries will also provide our graduates with many exciting educational and professional opportunities," said Linda Sellheim, Director of the Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD.

Students at the Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD automatically join a vibrant digital arts community and international network of schools with design specialties. NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NSAD) has been named one of 6 Digital Arts Schools to Cultivate Your Content Creation Craft by Backstage magazine, a premier performing arts community publication.  And Media Design School is New Zealand's most-awarded higher education institute for digital and creative technology studies. Students and graduates of Media Design School have received more than 250 awards and recognitions in the last decade from organizations such as Los Angeles Movie Awards, SXSW, and, NY Shorts Fest.

"The Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD provides students with a robust range of programs in digital design specialties that prepare them to succeed in our fast-changing global economy," said David Della-Rocca, a Toronto-based strategist who specializes in integrating digital arts industry needs and education.  "The interdisciplinary and international emphasis of the Media Design School of Digital Arts provides a dynamic and highly relevant foundation for students who are interested in careers in animation, game design and digital media."

The Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD programs prepare students for trans-media projects that can employ teams across multiple borders through the Media Design School of Digital Arts at NSAD.  Students have the opportunity to learn from international faculty and to spend a term at Media Design School in Auckland as part of their academic sequence, and the programs encourage the creation of portfolios that tackle "real world" projects developed in coordination with industry leaders and designers.
