Degree Entrance Scholarship Available
Once you’ve applied for admission to this program, we’ll automatically consider you for this award.
For details on how Sheridan programs will be delivered in upcoming semesters, please review our Fall 2022 Program Delivery Modes.
This program is offered in partnership with the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM). Application for admission to the program must be made to UTM through the Ontario Universities Application Centre.
The focus of the Communication, Culture, Information and Technology (CCIT) program is on the generation, diffusion and social impact of new technologies, and how media and technologies interact with commerce, culture and communication.
The CCIT curriculum first establishes a foundation of communication theory and then equips students with the technical proficiency and creative project planning skills necessary to translate that theory into practice in a variety of academic and professional applications, from research and instructional technologies to web design and marketing.
Our program offers an appealing opportunity for students to concurrently obtain both an undergraduate bachelor of arts degree at UTM and a Certificate in Digital Communications from Sheridan.
Experiential learning, in the form of the upper-level internship opportunities, further enhances eligible students' understanding of the essential role communication and its technologies play in industry settings. By presenting communication in this range of contexts and allowing for double majors and minors in other programs, the CCIT program gives students a breadth of knowledge that differentiates this program from other communications undergraduate degrees.
Don’t miss out! September 2021 will be the last opportunity to start our joint CCIT program with UTM.
Students currently in the program, and those starting in September 2020 and 2021, will have the same high-quality experience that Sheridan and UTM have offered jointly for the last two decades. The program will continue to run as usual for these students until their 2024 graduation. For more information, view CCIT Program Transition Details.

The final intake into the UTM/Sheridan Communication, Culture, Information and Technology program will be Fall 2021. We look forward to continuing to run the program jointly at both institutions until the final cohort graduates in 2024.
Every effort will be made through academic advisement and tracking to ensure that students have completed all required coursework at Sheridan by August 2024. In special circumstances, provision will be made through to August 2025 for students who require one or two additional credits to complete the Sheridan certificate coursework.
Below are answers to questions current CCIT students may have about the completion of their degrees.
UTM and Sheridan are both committed to running the joint program to ensure that all those admitted to the UTM/Sheridan CCIT program prior to and including Fall 2021 will be able to graduate as long as all certificate and degree requirements are successfully completed. The Sheridan certificate curriculum, including all current courses, will remain available to students admitted to the joint program prior to and including Fall 2021; for these cohorts, there will be no reduction in CCIT courses as they move through the program toward graduation.
Yes. The structure of the CCIT joint program will not change during the transition period. Sheridan certificate courses will be offered at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville, as usual.
During the transition period, CCIT students will have the same access to Sheridan facilities as they have always had.
For first-year students enrolling at UTM in the Fall of 2021 and beyond, UTM will continue to deliver the Honours Bachelor of Arts CCIT degree. The curriculum will be revised to reflect evolving needs and interests, and to prepare students for the expanding range of opportunities for communication professionals.
At UTM, courses migrated from Sheridan to UTM will be equivalent to non-major elective courses — so yes, a majority of the courses will be available to Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology students. At Sheridan, CCIT students will take only CCIT courses, as per past practice.
If you have any other questions that we haven't addressed here, please email Sheridan's CCIT Program Coordinator, Michael Jones.
