Comic Arts program

Comic Arts

“What I love most about Comic Arts is that it’s experimental yet there’s a sequence to telling your story. The faculty help the students tell those stories whether they be fantastical, epic super-powered battles or quiet personal memoirs; their goal and mission is to train us to be storytellers and help us develop our own voice. It’s the perfect combination of art and writing. And the location of the college is perfect. You can work remotely but it’s really easy to meet with other comic artists or clients in Boston and beyond." Shannon Scott, Illustration, Class of 2018





Comic Arts is and always has been a medium defined by passion, dedication, boldness, and experimentation. Our Comic Arts major is a unique, cross-disciplinary course of study that reflects that rich diversity of artistic expression present in the world of Comic Arts today. From traditional comics and editorial cartoons to the latest techniques and trends in graphic novels, anime or web-based animation, you will have the opportunity to learn not only how to tell a story, but how to bring it to life. Our Comic Arts major weaves together creative writing, illustration and graphic design in a one-of-a-kind program that will broaden your horizons and open up new avenues for creative exploration in all manner of storytelling. And, our innovative partnership with Center for Cartoon Studies affords you the opportunity to meet and work with a broad range of visiting comic artists and cartoonists from around the world.
