2017-2018 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Visual Narrative (15 credits)

Visual storytelling is a burgeoning form of communication that combines writing and images, and can be found in journalism, fiction, young adult and children's books, comic books and other forms.  The Visual Narrative Minor will bring together a variety of courses that will give undergraduates a more sophisticated and well developed approach to the creation and invention of graphic non-fiction and fiction for any audience. The courses come from both Creative Writing and Illustration, and encourage collaboration and creative cross pollination by undergraduate students and faculty.
