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.
