Unique in the Canadian post-secondary school system, the one year certificate program in Comics & Graphic Novels was created for students who have a desire to learn the language of visual storytelling. The program focuses on skills-based training for six career paths, which include creation (both in print and online) of comic books, comic strips, web comics, graphic novels, storyboards, and edutainment comics.
