A national online organization has rated the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga graphic design program as the top one in Tennessee.
For its 2020 awards, Animation Career Review, an online resource for people seeking careers in animation, game design, graphic design, digital art and related fields, selected the UTC Bachelor of Fine Arts: Graphic Design ahead of programs at UT Knoxville, Watkins College of Art in Nashville and East Tennessee State University.

The ranking criteria used for rankings included academic reputation, admission selectivity, depth and breadth of the program and value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness.
ACR began publishing regional and national rankings in 2012. For more information on the rankings, go to animationcareerreview.com.
