The Communication Studies program at Concordia University offers accredited degrees for undergraduate and graduate study in four major categories:
Our students come from varied backgrounds, as do our faculty and staff. Some of our majors have previously studied communication. Others have not. Our programs of study have no prerequisite courses. Students are, however, expected to be sensitive to the significance of media in society. In addition, we require that applicants to our programs think clearly and express their ideas concisely, have creative potential, and are capable of group work.
Our graduates are well prepared for a number of careers. Many have entered the media as producers, directors, writers, reporters, researchers, production assistants, etc. Others work in related fields, such as advertising, public relations, marketing, and promotion. Some have become media consultants, while others go on to further study to prepare for careers as lawyers or scholars.
