The site used data on academic reputation, admissions, faculty, tuition, graduation rates, and employment to formulate its rankings, noting exceptional career outcomes for Rutgers–Camden alumni. Graduates of the animation program have worked in the 3D animation industry for Walt Disney, Digital Domain, and Warner Bros., lending their talents to films, television series, and video games like “Frozen,” “Ice Age,” “Sesame Street,” and Assassin’s Creed.
