A New Program taking Media into the Future

Carleton led the way with Canada’s first School of Journalism more than 70 years ago. It is once again in the forefront with the launch of the innovative Bachelor of Media Production and Design (BMPD).

This new honours degree program takes its place beside the university’s internationally recognized Bachelor of Journalism and Master of Journalism programs.

The BMPD will give students a unique combination of skills. They will master innovative non-fiction story and design techniques that engage, inform, and entertain – ultimately contributing to a broader and deeper understanding of how we connect with each other in the 21st century to build stronger societies.

In a logical expansion of our continually evolving School, we’ve partnered with Carleton’s School of Information Technology to develop the BMPD, which will prepare students to be leaders in the broader world of media into the future.

The BMPD will continue our tradition of combining the best of professional hands-on skills instruction with an extensive and deep university education embracing the arts, humanities, social sciences and other spheres of knowledge.

Operating alongside our Journalism program in Richcraft Hall, where students work with the latest in video, audio and online production technologies, the BMPD welcomes those with a passion for storytelling and design to their new home at Carleton.
