Program Information

School:Sheridan College - Graduate Programs
Faculty:Faculty of Animation, Arts, & Design
Degree:Certificate
Field of Study:Business/Corporate Communications
Description:Can corporate communications be considered an art form? That's how Sheridan approaches the subject. It's a unique approach among business communications programs, and it produces student work that stands out. The courses in this program feature hands-on, project-based assignments. You'll be working for real-world clients, not just doing classroom exercises.


Sheridan not only emphasizes the critical, analytical and strategic skills prized by employers in corporate communications and public relations, it weaves social media and diversity communications into all aspects of tactical delivery. You'll do more than write catchy prose; you'll learn how to generate buzz, influence attitudes and motivate behaviour. Sheridan students have taken top honours in the Canadian Public Relations Society's (Hamilton Chapter) Pinnacle Awards for excellence in Public Relations.
