Our Cartoon and Comic Arts degree is a unique course that will help you to develop and define your skills in visual and narrative communication. We will prepare you for an exciting career in a diverse range of areas such as comics, newspapers, graphic novels, editorial design and storyboarding, character design, concept art, animation, advertising and film. You will have the opportunity to visit, network and sell your work at comic cons in London and Leeds, as well as travel abroad. We have developed a close link with the Cartoon Museum in London and we display work at their institute and hold joint events nationally. The University also boasts its own convention, Stoke Con Trent, which is attended by over 1500 people including industry professionals. The event is forming a link with Erlangen in Germany, which holds its own comic festival, Comic Salon.
