The School of Communications invites applications for the proposed Communications Studies sequence. However, the invitation to apply does not constitute a promise, explicit or implied, of acceptance into the Communications major. An application is merely a statement of interest. If and when the Communications Studies sequence becomes approved by the University, the School of Communications may make offers for admission to certain students, who may then choose whether or not to make those offers. The mere invitation to apply, as a statement, is not an offer of admission.


In addition to meeting the School of Communications’ application requirements, each student must complete the steps listed below in order to apply to the Communications Studies emphasis in the Communications major.  When you are ready to apply, click the “Click here to apply online” button at the bottom of the page and you will be directed to the online application site.

Applications to the News Media sequence are weighted as follows:

101 Grade 10%
238 Grade 30%
Letter of Application 60%

Letter of Application

As part of your application, please complete a one-page letter addressing the following:

  1. Why you want to be a Comms Studies student
  2. Your plans after graduation
  3. Previous experiences in communications

You will upload a PDF of the letter as part of the application process.
