Professional Communication at Ryerson

Dr. Jessica Mudry

Welcome to Professional Communication at the Creative School!  

What we do

Our students study the communication practices of a range of organizations and fields: politics, science, medicine and health, social justice, corporate and non-profit institutions and creative production.  ProCom students design and produce elegant, timely, and strategic communication for a variety of audiences, clients and partners. With an emphasis on professionalism and ethics, our program balances theoretical rigour with practical skills, and prepares students equally for graduate school, or the workplace.

Who we are

Our engaging faculty foster a challenging classroom environment that encourages critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and hands-on learning. We offer experiential learning opportunities, international study abroad programs in over 10 countries, a flexible curriculum and research assistantships - each make the ProCom student experience well-rounded, balanced and enriched.

Why we are important 

The world's complexities require clear communication and a professional skill set that emphasizes flexibility, innovation and strategic thinking. The ProCom experience is underpinned by a commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and our community prioritizes dignity, access and representation at all levels: student, staff and faculty.  Professional Communication believes that productive discourse is the cornerstone of education, and that scholarly progress in the humanities can only be achieved by the respectful exchange of ideas.  ProCom teaches students the power of ethical and effective communication as a tool for problem-solving - ever important in the changing global environment.
