Program of Study - Communications & Media
This program offers tools with which to understand media and to under stand how media functions, all in the context of a well-rounded Christian education. Students are encouraged to explore and analyse cultural artefacts such as television programs, movies and popular music in the context of interdisciplinary theory. The program includes introductory courses in Communications Theory and the world of Visual Communications, as well as courses focusing on the various media: Television, Film, Photography, Print and Radio. While the program does not include expansive professional training in media production, courses on global journalism, writing for the media and speaking in public will give students a foundation upon which to build practical skills.
Communications and Media at Providence is about media literacy as a foundation for further work in the field of media and communication. Understanding the media is integral to creating meaningful media. This program prepares students for employment in areas such as Canadian main stream media, government policy creation, or for further studies either in media production or in Communications and Media Studies at a graduate level.
All students in degree programs are required to take a minimum of courses in a variety of general arts and sciences so as to enable them to acquire an adequate foundation and context for their chosen area of studies, and to develop a critical appreciation of scholarship in general.
Biblical and Theological Studies establish anchor points for effective Christian thinking, living, and serving in the church and in society. The Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences deepen the understanding and heighten the appreciation of human nature, thoughts, cultures, and societies. Music and Theatre foster the musical and dramatic expression of the human spirit, condition, and experience.
