|Field of Study:||Communication and Media Studies, Other
Mass Communication/Media Studies
|Description:||Forget what you think you know about media. Yes, today’s media is what you listen to, watch, read, scroll and interact with—and our program will teach you to create on all of today’s platforms. But media in the 21st century transcends traditional and even new technologies. It’s the lifeblood of organizations from governments to charities to multinational corporations to local businesses. It’s how they interact with audiences, influence opinion, win elections, sell products and—as it always has—help people learn about and live in the world.
Media and Communication Studies will prepare you for this world with a comprehensive education in the how of media—how to write, record, shoot, design and create content. But you’ll also learn the whys behind the hows: why ethics are important. Why objective reporting is a cornerstone of democracy. Why social media is so influential—and so controversial. And why “boring” stuff like regulations, copyright and privacy is important. Select a variety of courses that reflect a broad scope or choose to focus your studies through a specialization. After 3rd year, you will complete an internship of 240 hours. Upon graduation you'll receive an honours degree in Media and Communication Studies and diploma in Media Communications.
