During the 2019-2020 year, Communication Studies is celebrating 40 years as a program and 10 years as a department!
Beginning as Mass Communication (Media) Studies and housed in the Division of Social Science, the now distinct Department of Communication Studies is a top ranked program in the province and country.
In professional and everyday life knowledge of communication is essential. Through our three thematic areas (Media, Culture and Society, Politics and Policy and Critical Technology Studies) students are taught to question, analyze and creatively reflect on the wide range of media systems. Our curriculum continues to encompass theoretical, applied and experiential learning and the research interests of our faculty reflect our diversity and excellence as a Department.
