Who We Are

In the Faculty of Animation, Arts, and Design (FAAD), we train performers, animators, filmmakers, designers, and artists like you to realize your full potential. You come here for the challenge of being different — and to make a difference — through your creative explorations.

Our renowned professors come from the industry, which means you receive a professionally relevant education that also makes you highly employable in your field. FAAD also gives you the chance to learn the latest technologies and offers opportunities to collaborate with students from other disciplines and faculties for a balanced education.

As a FAAD graduate, you leave with a rare combination of artistic talent, professionalism, and technical sophistication. You’ll be poised for success — and prepared to make your creativity a force for change.

The arts and design programs in our faculty are considered to be substantially equivalent according to the standards of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Animation Career Review released its top 25 International Animation School Rankings for 2019 with Sheridan in first place worldwide.
