Visual Storytelling


Interdisciplinary minor 

Visual Storytelling Minor is an interdisciplinary minor offered by the departments of English Studies and Visual and Performing Arts. 

The minor in Visual Storytelling integrates art, storytelling, and technology to introduce students to the field of creative visual storytelling with a focus on interdisciplinary study of the graphic novel. 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.
