Program #1 (Communication, Cultural, Information Technology): The focus of the CCIT program is on the generation, diffusion, and social impact of new technologies, and how media and technologies interact with commerce, culture and communication. The CCIT program combines academic courses in the arts and social sciences taught at the University of Toronto Mississauga with hands-on applied courses in digital media and technology taught at both UTM and the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, offering an appealing opportunity for students to concurrently obtain both an undergraduate bachelor of arts degree and a Certificate in Digital Communications from Sheridan. The CCIT curriculum first establishes a foundation of communication theory and then equips students with the technical proficiency and creative project planning skills necessary to translate that theory into practice in a variety of academic and professional applications, from research and instructional technologies to web design and marketing. Experiential learning, in the form of the upper level Internship opportunities, further enhances eligible students understanding of the essential role communication and its technologies play in industry settings. By presenting communication in this range of contexts and allowing for double majors and minors in other programs, the CCIT program gives students a breadth of knowledge that differentiates this program from other communications undergraduate degrees. Program #2 (Interactive Digital Media): Interactive Digital Media (IDM) is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program that is run jointly with the Faculty of Information (commonly known as the iSchool) at the University of Toronto. It provides students with a foundation in the generation, diffusion and critical analysis of the social impact of new and emerging technologies. In addition to learning how to analyze and use a variety of media tools, students will focus on digital media and its information communication infrastructures. Students will learn to design and create digital artefacts and create virtual environments suitable for collaboration, communication, learning and exploration. In the fourth year, students will be required to participate in an experiential learning based project relevant to their core interests. In addition to the CORE courses, students will be required to take two modules, each module consists of 5 half courses. The modules are designed as integrated sets of courses providing students with the knowledge and skills relevant to specific areas of specialization. The Knowledge Media Design module is designed to provide students with comprehensive knowledge and skills that are relevant for careers that involve the active and thoughtful design of content for knowledge media. These careers will span a range from traditional journalism through electronic publishing to the creation and management of knowledge media in traditional and digital organizations. The I’mmersive Digital Media module is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge for careers involving presentation, analysis, and immersive communication, utilizing data and information obtained from a wide variety of different media sources in a wide variety of formats. These careers span traditional business, web-based business, health care, education, and creative domains including gaming and simulation. Students will also be able to translate their skills and knowledge into performance environments. -Thanks in advance. (I was also wondering if i’d be able to work in the IT field with program #2). I think I found an answer. Nobody here can answer your question without knowing you personally. So, here’s my best advice: This is exactly what the University’s Guidance counselors are there for… Call and make an appointment.
