At Dundee University in Scotland, comic enthusiasts can now obtain a degree in Comic Book Studies. The one-year Masters program (led by Dr. Chris Murray, one of the UK's leading authorities on comics) is offered through the English department, and begins this fall.
Graduates of this course can go on to pursue a PhD in comics as well. Students in the program will learn about the impact comics have had on art, literature, and pop culture. There will also be a practical component, which focuses on publishing and developing a career as a comics expert, writer, or artist.
