Humber’s Bachelor of Digital Communications degree program invites you to explore the dynamic media environment and the cultural, social, economic and political implications of digital innovations. Communication studies are becoming recognized as one of the most significant of the social sciences in the 21st century. Increasingly, societal notions of the world are shaped through messages received from television, film, the web, social media, portable devices and a host of media arts, with profound impacts on how we view the world and ourselves. The construction of everyday lives and identities are negotiated through digital media and social networks, which expand connectivity and influence how we live and the products we produce and consume.
Our program is innovative and rigorous, centred on developing digital storytellers skilled in writing, visual communication, web applications, social media and business acumen. You will work in a dynamic studio-based environment where cross-pollination of creative ideas and methods develop. Students collaborate and innovate while gaining technical competency.
Intensive lectures, studios and labs provide direction, sharpen technical skills and stimulate critical discourse using the students’ work as the point of departure. Open access to studios, workshops and computing spaces sustains reflective project work while developing networks of diverse faculty, students and visitors. Historical, legal, ethical and theoretical considerations are embedded in the creative process. Students in the program will also engage with an array of breadth courses designed to deepen consciousness of their roles as citizens, who are aware of the social, political, environmental and cultural contexts of their work.
Senior students specialize in advanced communication theory and techniques and create a culminating production project designed to launch their professional careers. Graduates are also prepared to continue their studies at the master’s level.
