The Digital Media Studies Advanced Diploma program provides an academic pathway for international and resident students whose first language is not English (and do not meet the general English requirements for University entry) to gain the competencies in digital media, while attaining work experience in the field of digital media. On completion of the program, students can progress onto further academic options or follow a career path in digital media.
Interested students whose ESL competencies are below the minimum language proficiency requirements for the Digital Media Studies Advanced Diploma (DMS) program can be placed in our Intensive English for Digital Media Program at the college.
The Digital Media Studies (DMS) Advanced Diploma program explores the interrelationship between digital media and information technology as well as new media design. Students will simultaneously upgrade their English competencies while exploring theoretical knowledge.
The Digital Media Studies Advanced Diploma program includes seven courses of 80 hours (4 credits) each, and a 700-hour co-op placement (6 credits), totaling 1260 hours (36 credits) over 63 weeks on in-class education (theory and practice) and co-op.
The schedule and program end date are subject to change due to the student’s academic performance, course availability, academic breaks, additional electives, and study permit status.
