As media organizations dismantle their print editions and increase their online presence in myriad platforms, Carleton University has launched a new undergraduate program to teach students how to be digital storytellers.
This fall, the first group of students in Carleton’s new Bachelor of Media Production and Design (BMPD) program took their inaugural class.
Created jointly by the School of Journalism and Communication in the Faculty of Public Affairs and the Faculty of Engineering and Design’s School of Information Technology, the hybrid program is designed to teach both storytelling and computer programming skills with the goal of creating appealing stories for any device or digital platform.
