This program is offered in partnership with the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). Application for admission to the program must be made to UTM through the Ontario Universities Application Centre. This program has a September start date.
Our program combines humanities and social science courses at U of T Mississauga with digital media/technology courses at Sheridan.
What our program's about
The focus of the Communication, Culture, Information and Technology (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 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.
Gain a bachelor of arts and a certificate from one program
Our program offers an appealing opportunity for students to concurrently obtain both an undergraduate bachelor of arts degree at UTM and a Certificate in Digital Communications from Sheridan.
Stand out from the crowd
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.
Program notice for Fall 2021
Don’t miss out! September 2021 will be the last opportunity to start our joint CCIT program with UTM.
Students currently in the program, and those starting in September 2020 and 2021, will have the same high-quality experience that Sheridan and UTM have offered jointly for the last two decades. The program will continue to run as usual for these students until their 2024 graduation. For more information, view CCIT Program Transition Details.
