This diploma aims to train young multi-skilled professionals in the fields of graphic arts, illustration and animated images (illustration of books and stories, comic books, press, cartoons, digital imagery, motion design, web sites…).

The 2nd and 3rd years of the Bachelor are organized equally between illustration, animation and graphic skills and aim to master communication and narrative competencies.

Technical and professional skills are acquired in concert with creative development in order to be able to respond to commissioned work.

A comic /cartoon option is available on Marseille and Toulouse campuses, beginning on year 2. After the Bachelor, students may continue their studies in Master in Illustration & Comics, Master in Animation-Motion design or Master in communication strategy.
