This hands-on course gives you space to explore the theory, practice, and professional context of comic and concept art. Discover the limitless possibilities of this exciting field through practical, transdisciplinary, and industry-relevant skills.
This unique course is one of the first to bring together comic and concept art. Throughout this degree, you will refine your traditional drawing and digital art skills to design astonishing worlds and tell incredible stories from the imagination.
Using new technologies and industry-standard software, you will develop your design and planning skills alongside comic-art output. There is a strong emphasis on engaging with industry from the start of the course and gaining professional practice skills.
Our impressive industry links allow you to learn from practising artists, live briefs, and visiting lecturer workshops. We position all comic and concept art within an international context, such as involvement in Thought Bubble – the leading European comic art festival based in Yorkshire.
We encourage creative collaboration within the course and across the University, learning to work to briefs, participate in competitions, and have your work critiqued. You will develop your understanding of studio and freelance practice while gaining expert skills suitable for a range of creative careers.
Former students have forged successful careers in concept art for film and gaming industries, self-published comics, and even worked in theatre design.
