Dean's Message

As Dean of the Faculty of Communication Studies, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our virtual visitors. 

We continue to offer our four-year Bachelor of Communication degree with majors in: Information Design, Journalism and Public Relations. We are excited to offer our newest major in Broadcast Media Studies, effective Fall 2016. The Broadcast Media Studies major is only one of two offered in all of Canada and the only one available in Western Canada.

Expanding both academic and professional opportunities, these programs will give graduates a chance to fully explore their area of interest and move on to graduate studies if they choose.

Each year, our students work on industry-specific assignments, including newspaper and magazine production, an online radio station and video production, web design and portfolio creation, special event management and communication planning, music concerts and theatre productions — just to name a few. All of this is created in a state-of-the-art environment, designed to match what they will likely encounter in the ‘real’ world.

We are proud to be able to display this work on our student showcase website. You will see this library expand to include even more student-driven projects in the months and years to come.
