What Okanagan College says about their program:
"Learn the foundations of media and writing, and explore the functions of news and communications media, the history of journalism, and cultural policy and theory.


Communications explores how meaning is made in a range of contexts, including advertising, television, film, popular culture, and the internet. Learn how communication is fundamentally related to the development of self and society and examine how the messages of the contemporary world influence perception of such issues as gender, race, class, and community."
