SCAD-Atlanta's Sequential Art Program

I've gotten a few e-mails lately asking for details about the comics program at which I teach, and it's become increasingly difficult to give each correspondent the properly thorough response given that I write each one from scratch and that there's a lot to talk about.  I started to put it all into the Frequently Asked Questions section, but there's so much information that it would've overwhelmed the page, and as I'm doing my best to keep the site fairly Crogan Adventures-centric I didn't want to let that happen.  So I made this sub-page in which I'll include all the information that I think might be pertinent to someone interested in studying comics in college.  Hope it's helpful! 

I teach comics (the major is called Sequential Art) at the Atlanta campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).  Though SCAD started in Savannah, Georgia (hence the school’s name) in 1978, the Atlanta campus is fairly new.  It opened its doors to the public in 2005, and I began graduate school here the following year.  The school is right in the middle of the city, and it was a nice change of pace for me, moving from a small town to a place with loads of cultural activities, a half-dozen comics shops, lots of animators and comic artists, and an inexpensive airport from which I could easily travel to conventions.
I went to grad school for a couple of reasons.  The first is that I wanted to teach, which I am now lucky enough to be doing.  My dad was a college professor, and it was the half of my career of which I was always certain.  What I would do practically, and subsequently teach, changed a lot as I grew up, but ended up being exactly what I’d most wanted to do as a kid.  And that’s the second reason.  When I decided that I wanted to be a cartoonist, I knew that I needed to be trained for it, and after a lot of investigation decided that SCAD-Atlanta was the place best suited to what I wanted to do, and what I wanted to learn.
I thought it might be helpful to anyone considering studying comics in college to explain a little bit about what we do and what we offer so that you can make an informed decision as to whether or not our program is for you.
I do want to note that this is my personal page, and is in no way affiliated with SCAD itself.  If you're looking for the official SCAD website about the Sequential Art major, please click here.
