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.
