Minor in Visual Storytelling
Offered in collaboration with the Department of Visual and Performing Arts: An integrated program of design, illustration, and narrative analysis, the minor introduces students to principles of graphic design and narration, cinematic, digital and traditional illustration techniques, and various approaches to storytelling for creative visual presentation. The minor offers students the opportunity to concentrate in this focused area to satisfy an interest in comics/graphic novels and their film and digital adaptations, to prepare for further academic or professional study in visual storytelling and visual culture, or to work as cartoonists, graphic novelists, teachers of the graphic novel, or film and comics critics.
