Communication Studies

We are living in the information age, and our society needs highly literate graduates with an advanced knowledge of the nature, function and evolution of communication.

Communication Studies at McMaster is an interdisciplinary program offered by the Faculty of Humanities. Students examine core issues and learn about communication theories, which will give them the tools to make sense of the tangled web of media, culture and language, in a world where messages are embedded in all forms of information. They also take courses in different areas of communication studies such as cultural studies, performance studies and mass communication.


Programs in Communication Studies are  administered by the Department of Communication Studies & Multimedia.
