 The program will offer a certificate in the career areas of animation, visual effects, interactive gaming and visualization for medical and military applications.

 Chancellor Vincent J. Marsala thanked the Caddo Commission for making the program possible with the donation of a $500,000 grant.

The course will require 35 hours per week, but students must be screened and tested through a one-month training program. The highest performing student will be offered scholarships for the 11-month course. Tuition for the program is about $12,000.
