RTA School of Media’s four year Bachelor of Arts (BA) program is a unique mix of practice and theory. Students gain hands-on production skills in audio, television, and digital media and a keen understanding of storytelling. This is supported by in-depth courses in business, screenwriting and critical theory. To round out their education, students take electives in other Ryerson departments.
Fourth year is the culmination of the BA program. Students complete a major production or research paper applying all they have learned. Most students also take on a full time internship in the media industry.
RTA BA alumni are highly successful in all areas of media. They work as writers, producers and directors, broadcast executives, entertainment lawyers, on-air journalists and personalities, new media entrepreneurs, and in marketing and advertising. Many run their own businesses. Many pursue post-graduate studies and academic careers.
