Now more than ever, comics are being used to address social and political issues, such as identity and social justice, and a variety of global challenges. Understanding how comics work opens a door to a much wider set of issues and urgent questions.

This course offers excellent employment and networking opportunities for anyone interested in working in the field of comics, either critically or creatively. 

You may choose to pursue an academic career, work in the media, or in the creative industries or publishing.

Our graduates have gone on to enjoy huge success in the industry, both as comics creators and as editors. Some have worked for US and Canadian publishers such as:

  • Marvel
  • DC
  • Image
  • Dark Horse Comics
  • Chapterhouse Comics
  • Titan Comics
  • 2000AD
  • Judge Dredd Magazine
  • Boom! Studios

We host guest speakers, giving you networking opportunities, and you will meet industry professionals and comics scholars. There are sometimes opportunities to be involved in the organising of events, and there is the possibility of arranging internships.

“This course allowed me a deeper insight into the world of comics. After I graduated I gained employment at Titan Comics as an Assistant Editor. Following this I was offered a job at DC Thomson in Dundee as a Comics Commissioning Editor. My CV now boasts an impressive list of skills.”

Kirsten Murray, MLitt Comics and Graphic Novels graduate
