Communication Studies

In Communications Studies, students use a variety of approaches to understand how knowledge and culture are produced and reflected in speech, writing, television, film, radio, digital media and interactive entertainment, the internet, and wireless networks.

The Religious studies program examines the variety of beliefs and behaviours through which people around the world express spiritual impulses, both in formal religions and everyday life. What do people believe is sacred? What do they think about the meaning and purpose of existence? How do they live out these beliefs?


Gerontology is the study of aging and older adults. As an interdisciplinary field of study, Gerontology integrates knowledge from biology, psychology, and sociology and other areas of expertise like communication and counselling, end of life care, and human sexuality.
