Dean's Message of Welcome
Unique. Urban. Unparalleled. These three words only begin to describe the nine distinct schools that are part of the Faculty of Communication & Design at Ryerson University; but they go some way towards explaining why the innovative programs in our Faculty are some of the most sought after at Ryerson – a University which receives more applications per available seat than any other in Ontario, if not Canada.
Professionally oriented, our programs not only foster close relationships with a multitude of partners in the creative industries, both locally and internationally, but also produce an exceptional academic environment in which students and faculty can hone their artistic skills in synergy with their academic capacities. To be part of the Faculty of Communication & Design is to be a member of a passionate, talented community of students, faculty, staff and alumni.
Throughout this website, you will find evidence of our visionary creative practice, innovative research, broad range of academic programs, and recognized achievements. We are incredibly proud of the continuing success of our faculty and students and of the dynamic relationships with our cultural industries partners. Please take a moment to learn more about these. We will be waiting for you when you are ready to join us.
