About

The Communications and Public Policy (COPP) program at Saint Thomas University is the home to the Frank McKenna Centre for Communications and Public Policy. The program offers a unique set of courses that focus on both public and private-sector communications with an emphasis on how this impacts public policy. 

Overview

The Communications and Public Policy Major at Saint Thomas University explores the connection between communicating with citizens and creating, implementing, and evaluating public policy. Students in the program will explore the influence of communications in the process of a participatory democracy, preparing them to work as communications professionals in the public, private and non-profit sectors.

Learning outcomes

The program encourages its graduates to be able to work in both English and French and provides opportunities for bilingual students and French immersion students to continue their studies in both languages. Upper-year courses offer students the opportunity to complete course work (and internships) in English and French.

Critical and transferable skills gained from studying Communications and Public Policy include writing, critical thinking, written and verbal communications, multimedia and social media skills that interact with course work, public speaking and professional presentations, professional career preparation skills, and many others.
