Jointly offered by the Department of English and the School of Art, the Word and Image minor is an academic option for any student interested in exploring the intersection between writing and the visual arts through the making of graphic novels, comics, picture books, photo books, video games, and illustrations. Completion of the minor requires 21 credit hours of course work; a 9 hour core, 6 hours of electives in “Word” and 6 hours of electives in “Image” courses. Students conclude the minor by completing ENG 4960 - Word Image Studio , a capstone course emphasizing collaborative and/or individual work on projects that synthesize knowledge and skills developed in previous core and elective courses. The Word and Image minor is designed to be equally accessible to BA/BFA Art students, BA in English and BFA in Creative Writing students, and students from degree programs across the University.
