Program Description

Master in Sequential Art

SCAD - The Savannah College of Art and Design

Sequential artists are telling today's stories

As a sequential art student at SCAD, you will learn to wield the power of narrative in every medium: comic books, graphic novels, cartoons, comic strips, Manga, children's books and storyboards. And you'll do it in a department so highly revered that it's been called "the Harvard of comics," recognized by USA Today, and named among the three institutions from which Marvel Comics recruits the most editors.
