York University and Ryerson University have pooled their resources to offer the Joint Graduate Program in Communication and Culture - an interdisciplinary initiative unmatched anywhere in Canada.
The joint graduate program in Communication and Culture ("ComCult"), a unique partnership between Ryerson and York, combines expertise and opportunities for advanced study of media and cultural technologies, as well as communications politics in practice and theory.
With access to both universities, you can take advantage of some of the best academic and creative resources available at any Canadian university, including media production facilities, archival collections, on-line and library resources and the many collections, institutions, and creative industries in the Greater Toronto Area.
ComCult course directors, committee members, and supervisors are drawn from both universities. As a ComCult student, you will have access to professors from across a wide spectrum of disciplines, including Social Sciences, Humanities, Fine Arts, Education, Business, Environmental Studies, Sociology, Politics, Law, Languages and more.
Our professors are widely published in academic forums, have had their creative work exhibited at juried festivals and galleries, and have received significant research funding. Others maintain professional experience in industry, or bring a professional background to their work as professors.
The city's central location means that you will have access to many other resources, including adjunct faculty and visiting lecturers. Other benefits include exposure to many culture- and communication-based industries and activities. Learn more about our MA and PhD programs.
