This panel is a presentation of the MFA in Comics program at California College of the Arts, one of only two programs in the country that offers an accredited graduate degree in comics. As academic institutions are slowly creating entire departments and offering degrees devoted entirely to the study of comics and sequential art, this panel serves to highlight the inner workings and experiences of studying and producing comics at the graduate level from a variety of disciplines, including technical production, cultural studies, digital media, pedagogy, and professional practice. Current and former students Phillip Fleming (The Long Road to Revolution), Kellyn Borst (Dredkuld), Maia Kobabe (Gender Queer: A Memoir), Ashley R. Guillory (California College of the Arts), Shuchita Mishra (California College of the Arts), Dustin Garcia (California College of the Arts), and Eric Wong (Kentucky Killzone) will present on their individual thesis projects, and faculty Allen Passalaqua (Battlepug) and John Jennings (Kindred) will speak on the courses they teach in the program.
