Overview

The New Media Studies program of University of Toronto is a unique Joint Program between U of T Scarborough and Centennial's Centre for Creative Communication (CCC), this program allows students to get the best of both worlds: the academic research strength of U of T Scarborough and the industry experience and reputation of CCC. 

In this Joint program, students have to master the techniques necessary to create new digital representations, but more importantly, to learn about the theories and practice of using these media to achieve desired purposes for specific audiences, including both those inside and outside of academic settings. This program may be taken in partial fulfillment of the requirements of a four year (20 credit) Honours Degree, when taken with a major (or specialist) program in another field. In addition to completing the requirements for the degree, students have the option of qualifying for a certificate from Centennial College by undertaking an additional session that includes field placement and a professional practice course.
