Communication, Culture, Information & Technology (CCIT MAJOR)

The focus of the CCIT program is on the generation, diffusion, and social impact of new technologies, and how media and technologies interact with commerce, culture and communication. The CCIT program combines academic courses in the arts and social sciences taught at the University of Toronto Mississauga with hands-on applied courses in digital media and technology taught at both UTM and the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, offering an appealing opportunity for students to concurrently obtain both an undergraduate bachelor of arts degree and a Certificate in Digital Communications from Sheridan.

The CCIT curriculum first establishes a foundation of communication theory and then equips students with the technical proficiency and creative project planning skills necessary to translate that theory into practice in a variety of academic and professional applications, from research and instructional technologies to web design and marketing. Experiential learning, in the form of the upper level Internship opportunities, further enhances eligible students understanding of the essential role communication and its technologies play in industry settings. By presenting communication in this range of contexts and allowing for double majors and minors in other programs, the CCIT program gives students a breadth of knowledge that differentiates this program from other communications undergraduate degrees.
