Studying media and communications at Redeemer enables and encourages the next generation of storytellers with the technical skills and Christian vision to live, work, and lead in an evolving media world. Redeemer's Media Production program equips students to assess and interact with mass media in ways that enable them to discern and understand the influence of the messages they are receiving.

Media Production is a Bachelor of Communications and Media Studies or Bachelor of Arts degree program. It is offered as an honours major and as a major.

Quick Links

Right from the start, you are introduced to the forms, uses, and interpretations of media, focusing on the techniques of storytelling through media through the use of the Mac lab, video production equipment, and software.

Your classes provide you with the theoretical foundations and practice skills to discern the messages you are receiving and understand the influence that those messages have on identity.

Media Production The Core

The Core Curriculum is a set of 10 courses that every student takes. The courses are woven through every major and get you to think deeply and broadly about what you’re studying. Think about it this way…

  • Content writers are more persuasive when they understand the dominant philosophical concepts in culture.
  • Media coordinators who understand marketing trends and are effective collaborators are more successful in their business ventures.
  • Videographers have a deeper sense of compassion when they ground themselves in the narrative of Scripture.
