The Graduate Diploma in Communication Studies provides students with an intensive introduction to the field of communication. This one-year program will give you a deeper understanding of modern media and hands-on experience in video, intermedia and sound production. Our dedicated faculty will guide you through the key research areas in the field, with elective courses such as documentary studies, feminist media studies, new media and ethics and popular culture.

You will study the creative and technical aspects of moving images and new digital technologies through a series of interactive production courses. Our facilities include state-of-the-art film and video editing suites, intermedia labs, and sound recording studios. Join a diverse body of young scholars and professionals working to expand their personal qualifications in media production and theory. The city of Montreal also provides numerous opportunities for students interested in taking the internship option during the course.
