Communication Studies Programs

The graduate program in Communication Studies offers MA and PhD degrees. The program is concerned with the study of communication phenomena through interdisciplinary training that draws on a variety of fields and reflects our faculty interests in critical, anti-oppressive, and interpretive traditions in communication studies. The program strives to offer a balance of humanities and social sciences approaches to the analysis of communications. Our orientation is primarily qualitative (rather than quantitative) in nature. The MA and PhD degrees are academic in character; we do not offer professional training in media production. Over the past 30 years, the Graduate Program in Communications has trained many of Canada's leading communications scholars. Graduates of the program may be found working in all levels of government, within the cultural industries, and in communications departments at dozens of universities around the world.

Graduate Option in Gender and Women’s Studies: Information regarding this option is available on the IGSF website.
