Learning by Doing

Media Production and Design students will have the best of both worlds.

You’ll study alongside journalism students who produce work that reaches the wider community through broadcasts, print publications and online sites. You’ll share classes with students from Carleton’s Interactive Multimedia Design program, with the chance to participate in gaming and simulation projects.

Earning a Degree, at Home and Abroad

Media Production and Design students can do a co-op year after the first term of Year Three, at home or across Canada.

You can apply for a School-sponsored internship in Africa, Asia, and Latin America through our Centre for Media and Transitional Societies, in partnership with World University Service of Canada.
