JOHNSON CITY (September 23, 2013) — East Tennessee State University’s digital media program has been named among the “Top 15 Animation and Game Design Schools in the South” in an article by “Animation Career Review.”

Schools in 11 southern states were evaluated, and ETSU came in at number eight. The university’s three digital media concentrations encompassing digital animation, digital visualization, and digital interaction and game design were mentioned.
