Discover our programs:
Major in Communication Studies
The Communication Studies program is unique for its combined approach to theory and production. You’ll have access to excellent facilities – classrooms, labs/studios and production equipment that prepares you for media production careers in a range of creative work settings like advertising, marketing, public relations, animation, sound recording, performing arts, theatre and more. There is also the option to continue your studies at the graduate level.
Major in Communication & Cultural Studies
The Communication and Cultural Studies program involves in-depth study of the social, cultural, political and aesthetic aspects of media and communication. This program engages students in small seminars on critical thinking, media analysis and communications research skills and does not include production classes. This option is particularly well-suited to those pursuing a career in media policy or research and is an excellent pathway to graduate studies.
