Digital Communication

Certificate in Digital Communication

Communication studies from the spoken word to the digital age

A balanced foundation in communications theory

In the Digital Communication program you'll study how digital communication impacts society. You'll explore the ways communication influences and reflects society and culture, and the role that digital technology has in the communication process.

What you'll learn

In this 10-course (two-semester) program, six core courses provide a broad base of applied theoretical knowledge to get you started in communications.

You'll also take a production course to get some hands-on experience, and use the four electives to customize your credential according to your interests.

Work experience option

As a certificate student, you have the option of extending your program with a three-month internship. Your work term will give you hands-on experience and connections that will help you start your career in communications.

After your work term, you will graduate with a Certificate in Digital Communication - Internship Designation.

With a Certificate in Digital Communication you can transfer up to 30 credits to the University of Victoria, Vancouver Island University and other BC institutions, as well as into Camosun's Diploma in Arts and Science Studies. This certificate can also lead to a full block transfer to Royal Roads University's Bachelor of Arts in Professional Communication program.
