Comics & Narrative Practice major
Write, illustrate, and publish your own sequential art.
Comics & Narrative Practice is our groundbreaking program devoted to telling stories with words and images. You’ll create original comics and graphic novels and learn how to shape narrative elements and invent signature styles, stories, and characters. You’ll also meet with top industry practitioners and immerse yourself in the profession, culture, and art of comics as you gain practical experience with story pitches, prepress, budgeting, and marketing. (It doesn’t hurt that we host speakers from Cartoon Crossroads Columbus, or CXC, on campus.)
Our graduates can go on to work as independent artists, writers, publishers, comics illustrators, colorists, letterers, storyboard artists, and character developers for comics, animation, gaming, and toys.
