Positioned at the convergence of science and art, the Environmental Visual Communication program is designed to fill a recognized void of individuals who possess a blend of environmental science skills and the ability to effectively communicate to a variety of audiences. With a focus on strategic messaging and technical savvy, students learn to use photography, videography, multimedia and design principles to bridge environmental competencies with thoughtful communication through diverse media channels. They also learn how to identify strategies to inform and educate, garner engagement and support, and build and share campaigns to address conservation issues. Equipped with hybrid skills and a sense of active environmental stewardship, graduates of this innovative, integrated, and applied program will be able to connect ideas among diverse groups and tell compelling stories with fluency. The program includes the development of an individual applied project plus a class conservation campaign and is offered in an intensive, compressed format. To enter this program, students require a university degree or Ontario College Diploma in an environmental field. Applicants who possess a degree or diploma in other disciplines and who can demonstrate experience in the environmental sector may also be considered.
