Through new media production and studies, you explore the interconnectivity between technology, art, industry, and culture. Our students acquire the creative, critical, and technical skills necessary to evolve with emerging technologies in a variety of professional practices.
The 5-year combined degrees program provides you the opportunity to graduate with two degrees. Your new media studies prepare you to be a versatile new media professional and an adaptable, innovative instructor in the field of Career and Technology Studies: New Media Focus. The Education degree focuses on three professional semesters, which provide practical experience through supervised placements in schools.
In the New Media Department, you will explore, study, and create using a wide range of technologies and techniques with studies in graphic design, web design and development, interaction design, 3D modelling, animation, video game design and development, screenwriting, cinema production and studies, and new media theory. Graduates of our programs understand the ways in which emerging technologies are related to other media forms and convergent cultural activities.
As a student teacher, you have 27 weeks of practical classroom experience in a broad range of schools from rural to urban, and elementary to secondary, with a focus in your teachable area. As part of a graduating class of superior educators, the University of Lethbridge’s Faculty of Education teacher preparation is nationally recognized for its excellence.
