Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:
Perform the duties, tasks and activities required of a media communications specialist in business, government and the not-for-profit sectors.
Research and gather information in print, audio and visual formats for communications’ products and strategies.
Analyze clients’ communications needs and implement solutions for business, government and the not-for-profit sectors.
Create audio, visual and print communications according to the client’s purpose and audience.
Design and create content for websites, using current software applications.
Capture, scan, download, save, store, and manipulate digital images using current software applications.

Create and manage content for presentations at in-house meetings and media conferences.
Adhere to ethical and legal guidelines in communications practice.
Maintain professional relationships with business associates and clients.
Develop a portfolio of communications’ products and strategies for a variety of projects and audiences.
In semester four, often through the school’s placement program, students find suitable, unpaid, work placements which run from 10 to 11 weeks or a total of no fewer than 120 hours. During that time, students hone their skills in professional environments, developing digital communication solutions. They build complete portfolios which, when they graduate, have them standing out from their competitors as corporate communications professionals. Students file work placement reports, generate company needs assessments and develop capstone projects which respond to those needs.
The Humber AdCentre was launched as a live lab to provide students with real work opportunities before entering the industry.
Instead of just being given just a grade for assignments, students are provided with a chance to work with real clients, on actual accounts, receiving first-hand experience in the field.
Working with established businesses will not only prepare students for the fast-paced excitement of the industry, but will also help develop portfolio work and reference points for interviews.
According to a study by Veronis Suhler Stevenson (VSS), a private investment firm, companies are increasing their spending on media relations and communicating their brands with stakeholders. This trend is expected to continue. The skills you learn in our program will prepare you for a career in this expanding field. As a media communications specialist, you will help organizations better engage clients, partners, employees and reporters by developing compelling external and in-house communications that inform, persuade and motivate.
With broad-ranging skills and knowledge in multimedia, marketing, web design and writing, social media, and videography, graduates find work in the marketing and communication departments of businesses, organizations or government departments, and as freelance communications professionals.
Students in Humber's Media Communications program celebrated the opening of their graduate exhibit showcase at North Campus.
