Communication Studies (BA)
Why choose Communication Studies?
We are one of the most established and respected Communication Studies programs in North America, and are well known for combining creative media production with the study of media theory, criticism and history. We draw from the humanities, social sciences and fine arts in a unique program that has trained many influential media makers.
You will work with a variety of media art forms and you will examine how meaning and ideas are communicated through media in various ways. In the first year you will create projects with sound, video and intermedia, as well as study theory, criticism and history of communications and media. You will be part of an exciting and dynamic team of students. You'll work together for three years, taught by an engaged and dedicated faculty of renowned scholars and artists.
