Statement from BMPD in response to the shooting in Colorado Springs

The Bachelor of Media Production and Design program is heartbroken by recent events in Colorado Springs – a hate crime that targeted members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and their safe spaces. There is an epidemic of violence against transgender and gender-nonconforming people. BMPD faculty and staff stand with those affected by this tragedy. We view our small program as a family where all are welcome.

The GSRC (Gender and Sexuality Resource Centre) is also a great resource for peer support

Want to be in the forefront of new media development and design? 

Have an interest in telling stories using your online creativity to write, to shoot video and photos, add audio, data and graphics? Love to design the whole story package, then use your computer programming skills to pull it all together on a screen or mobile device to engage audiences of all ages?

That’s Carleton’s Bachelor of Media Production and Design program. Four years to acquire all those skills and more. 

The BMPD is a 20-credit program with 12.0 core credits and 8.0 elective credits – lots of room to explore other subjects for a well-rounded university education. You will take media production courses created just for this degree, join computer programming students in some of their existing courses, and study subjects such as media law and ethics alongside journalism students. 

Who will want you after you graduate? Corporations, charities, governments, media companies, educational and research institutions, museums – in fact anyone who wants to tell stories online. 

In the 21st century, that’s just about everyone.

The program is open to students who have completed an Ontario Secondary School Diploma with six Grade 12 courses at the 4U or 4M level. Those credits must include Grade 12 English 4U and one Math credit, with Advanced Functions recommended. You don’t need a computer science background. High school graduates from outside Ontario should visit Carleton Admissions office for admission requirements.

To our new and returning students,

We are looking forward to welcoming you in September. The BMPD Program will resume to a regular in-person Fall 2022 term while following COVID-19 measures that are in place by Carleton University.

I’m available to answer any questions you may have about this, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Prof. Vicky McArthur, Program Director, Bachelor of Media Production and Design
