Student Success and Outcomes

The best testament to the success of the Electronic Arts program lies in our students outcomes.  EA's focus on storytelling, collaboration and effective communication has paid off in many significant accomplishments.  Since  2001,  Electronic Arts students have won over 400 international, national and regional awards for their creative work. The work has literally been screened and heard all over the world.

After graduating, EA students typically go on to prestigious graduate programs or enter directly into a variety of professional careers. We have alumni currently working in film (Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago), multimedia and web design (San Francisco, Chicago, Kansas City), game design (St. Louis), studio recording studios (Nashville, Austin), television production (Los Angeles, Tallahassee), 3-D animation (Singapore, North Carolina, San Francisco), and sound design for film (Los Angeles, Beijing).
