CSU Fullerton Graduate Program

The strength of the illustration program at California State University, Fullerton, is its focus on giving students the conceptual understanding, technical skills, and practical experience to become effective and creative communicators. Our specialty is visual storytelling. The better illustrators understand their craft -- our visual language -- the better visual communicators they become. Faculty continue to work in the industry providing students with firsthand insights to the latest trends as well as professional connections.

The graduates of CSUF's illustration program work at a variety of entertainment and publishing companies, such as Blizzard Entertainment, Cartoon Network, DreamWorks SKG, EA Games, Lucasfilm Ltd., Marvel Entertainment, Nickelodeon, Top Shelf Productions and The Walt Disney Co.

Students gain employment in video games, board games, publishing, comics, children's books, animation, film industry, cover art, licensing and more. They are employed in every major studio on the West Coast.
