CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Sequential Art

Associate in Applied Arts Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 1048  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

This degree is designed for students who wish to specialize in illustration as it applies to computer graphics, animation, and cartoon, comic book, or self-publishing. Career options for sequential artists include storyboard and/or conceptual artist for film, television, animation, gaming, and advertising; illustrator for books and other publications; inker/penciler/colorist; comic syndication; and self-publishing. Sequential artists should expect to work as part of a development team that may include animators, film and video producers, graphic designers, or video game developers.

Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.
