Some of our courses are part of the curriculum of various career programs like Business Administration or Outdoor Recreation. However, we also have three programs tailored specifically to students with both academic and career interests in communication.
The Bachelor of Communication Studies (120 credits) prepares students for careers in areas of strategic communication in a variety of organisational contexts. Combining the critical study of media and communication with applied communications courses and project-based courses in professional communication strategies, the Bachelor of Communication Studies offers students opportunities not just learn about communication, but to become competent practitioners in professional fields.
The Communication Studies Diploma program (60 credits) is a two year transfer program into the Bachelor of Communication at Simon Fraser University’s School of Communication. This program is designed for students interested in a broad exploration of issues, ideas and practices in communication and whose career paths necessitate the development of critical, analytic and creative skills.
The Magazine Publishing Program (30 credits) is a summer program tailored to students interested in magazine publishing. The program leads students through all phases of the publishing process from writing and editing to design and layout and includes a six credit directed internship.
Please see individual program pages for full descriptions, admissions requirements and program profiles.
