Courses in Other Programs
ProCom offers courses to many other Schools and Departments at Ryerson. Students from other programs should check their own program requirements to see if they are required to take any of these courses.
Current course outlines are also available in PDF format.
Each year sixty students will be admitted to ProCom. This relatively small number of students means that you will have opportunities to get to know your fellow students and to participate in smaller workshop oriented classes. At ProCom, we encourage networking opportunities between students at all levels of the program, between faculty and students, and between students and our industry/organizational contacts.
Awards and Scholarships
Ryerson University and the Faculty of Communication and Design offer a number of awards and scholarships for students.
