Read the Official Description

Comics is an art that is both literary and graphic.

Composed of a succession of images, accompanied or not by a text, it allows to tell a real or imagined story. To make a comic, the artist must establish the synopsis, specify the division of the action, write the dialogues, create the characters and the environment in which they evolve. He must also choose the points of view, the framing and the arrangement of the vignettes, make a first sketch of the drawing, proceed with the inking, with the setting in color and finally, transcribe the dialogues and the narrative headbands. Once published, the comic can be presented in various formats (eg strip, board, fanzine, album).

This program is for people who have an interest in comics, want to be experts in the field and become full writers.

Concentration in comics aims to train complete authors mastering the many aspects of graphic narration (eg scriptwriting, drawing, graphic finishing). Students will delve deeper into all aspects of comic strip creation, from the first idea to the completion of a publication. Throughout their studies, they will develop a reflection on this means of expression as well as a critical mind on the contemporary production of comics.

This program is for people who show an interest in the arts. In addition to concentration-specific courses, this course provides five enrichment courses in related disciplines, allowing students to acquire complementary skills.
