Final Projects, fall 2015 feature comic book/graphic novels, or short videos (3 min or less), or online text & photo stories.

Content emerged through reflection techniques from Ignatian Contemplation and Paulo Freire, and focused on a few possible themes,
"something I learned/experienced/found significant --
      ... during my first semester at college/USF" 
      ... an idea or experience from this class"

sfMediaProf's insight:

Excellent final (comic book) projects for the #USFCA First Year Seminar, "Mashup: Media & Pop Culture in San Francisco," fall 2015.


Students developed a comic or video that addressed a significant event or experience during their first semester of college.  They also integrated a theory from cultural studies or media studies.


The results are posted on,, or YouTube.  Check out these great stories and comics!
