Digital Media Skills Certificates

Upgrade your degree with in-demand media production skills 

Starting in Fall 2022, Laurier students may enroll in a pair of new undergraduate certificates focused on digital media production. They are designed for students who wish to complement the knowledge they gain through their degrees with a set of contemporary digital media and research skills that can be used in communications, marketing and/or community engagement work and be highlighted to employers with a recognized university credential. 

 Start here! 

WHO IS IT FOR? 

The Digital Media Skills Certificates are for students who wish to augment their degree with hands-on training in a range of in-demand digital media skills including audio storytelling, videography, photography and digital imaging in a research-based context. You take the certificate courses alongside your degree courses, similar to a minor or option.  

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE? 

Any Laurier student majoring in a program that is not Digital Media and Journalism is eligible. There is no additional cost for the certificates beyond the tuition you’ll pay to take each course. All classes are held in person at the Brantford campus. 

 

WHAT YOU’LL GET 

In addition to hands-on training from Laurier faculty and experts from the field, you’ll have access to the Digital Media and Journalism program’s dedicated computer lab, open 24/7. You’ll also be able to borrow equipment from the program’s lending library at no cost, such as DSLR cameras, digital video recorders, digital audio recorders, microphones, lighting kits, tripods and more. You’ll also earn an undergraduate certificate—a recognized university credential—to highlight your skills to employers.
