Since the program's inception, ComCult students have been instrumental in forming a graduate student culture at Ryerson. They were among the first to develop a Graduate Student Association, and have coordinated the Intersections graduate conference annually since 2001.
ComCult has an official university page on LinkedIn, external link. In the past, the joint nature of our program has made it difficult for current students and alumni to connect with one another on LinkedIn’s professional network as students could only list one school on their profile. Our page is affiliated with both schools, and will serve as a central hub for connecting with alumni, sharing program updates, and distributing content relevant to ComCult graduates.
Update your information
If you currently have a LinkedIn profile, we ask that you follow these steps to update your information:
Log on to your LinkedIn profile
Scroll down to “Education” and click “edit”
If you currently have “Ryerson University” or “York University” listed as under “School”, type in “Communication and Culture” instead
The joint program logo should appear in the drop down menu
Verify that the “Degree” section reflects MA or PhD. You also have the option to add the stream under “Field of Study” i.e. Technology in Practice
You can locate and access the page here https://www.linkedin.com/school/comcult/ or from either the
Ryerson or York LinkedIn pages (Communication and Culture is listed as an “Affiliated School” on both official university pages).
Benefits to changing your profile status
You are now listed as a current student or alumni of both Ryerson and York Universities, and included in the career insight data for both universities
You can easily connect and network with other students and alumni from the program, regardless of which side they registered with
The page will serve as a joint online community where updates from both sides of the program will be posted, and you can be kept up to date with program news
As alumni, you can easily locate and request to join the private alumni group (listed as a featured group on the ComCult profile) where updates will be tailored to alumni engagement (networking events, surveys on how alumni want to be engaged, job postings, etc.)
