Joint Graduate Program in Communication and Culture (MA, PhD)

Apply now for Fall 2022 Admission


Launched in 1999, the joint graduate program in Communication and Culture ("ComCult")<https://www.ryerson.ca/graduate/programs/comcult/> is a remarkable partnership between Ryerson University and York University.

No other master's or doctoral program supports as thorough an examination of the essential interaction between communication practices, processes, and technologies, as well as cultural institutions, industries, practices, and individual makers of culture.

Our students pursue their coursework and research by majoring in one or more interdisciplinary streams:

  *   Media and Culture: the confluence of media and culture and their relationships within social systems.

  *   Politics and Policy: the critical role of the state and civil society in the development of communication systems, the production and distribution of culture, and issues of societal power.

  *   Technology in Practice: the development, application, and influence of historical, current and emerging communication technologies in cultural production, both personal and organizational.

We are proud of the quality of our student research and academic achievements. On our website, you can read a sampling of student project abstracts<https://www.ryerson.ca/graduate/programs/comcult/research-creative/>. Also, please visit our People page<https://www.ryerson.ca/graduate/programs/comcult/people/> to review a selection of faculty and student research profiles.

Our students <https://www.ryerson.ca/graduate/programs/comcult/people/> come from diverse social sciences, humanities, media, business, cultural production and fine arts backgrounds. Our program offers a rich curriculum that supports this diversity.

We offer competitive funding packages, teaching and research assistant work opportunities and strong support for external scholarship application success. There are for-credit field placement options for master’s students as well as opportunities to conduct scholarly research-creation and multi-modal scholarship projects at both the master’s and doctoral level.

More than 140 faculty <https://www.ryerson.ca/graduate/programs/comcult/people/> from both York and Ryerson are eligible to teach and supervise in the program with links to dozens of leading labs and research centres. Our faculty 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.

ComCult alumni have found success throughout Canada and around the world across many sectors, including: academia, arts and culture management, policy, public service, journalism, marketing communications, publishing, photography, project management, freelance writing and editing, non-profit administration, law, film, and design.

With access to both Ryerson University and York University, our students benefit from 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 region.

Toronto is a vibrant, global city and is also known as one of the safest urban centres in the world. The city's central location means that you will have access to many resources, including adjunct faculty and visiting lecturers and exposure to many culture- and communication-based industries and activities.

The ComCult Priority of Consideration deadline for Fall 2022 is January 18, 2022.
