Media, Design & Communication Arts


The Media Design and Communication (Broadcasting) courses offered provide students with the opportunity to gain knowledge, experience and practical skills in the areas of videography/broadcasting, computer animation, and photojournalism. Most of the teaching is done with personal instruction from industry professionals as the student work through projects. As new technologies emerge in the industry, the training offered will evolve. Through learning and experience in Media Design and Communication, students will become aware of related career opportunities in this field.

Program Delivery

Students may pursue courses in three distinct pathways that include:

  • Videography/Broadcasting
  • Computer Animation, and 
  • Photojournalism

They will plan, capture and produce photography, animation and/or video assets using advanced equipment, techniques, and software that are the current standard for post-secondary and commercial facilities.


Students are expected to treat facilities and equipment with care and respect.


Students will need to purchase some of their supplies necessary for course instruction, including memory cards. Please see our Fees page.
