Graduate-level Communications studies

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

I was recently asked if I knew which (if any) of Ontario’s graduate-level communcations/media programs had embraced the concepts of social media. I don’t know the answer to that question, so I’ll crowd-source it.

What graduate-level communications/pr/media programs would you recommend to anyone particularly interested in social media?

The original question pertained to Ontario’s programs, but it would be great to hear about programs from farther afield a well!

I have the privilege of serving on the hiring committee for this position and would appreciate your help spreading word of this opportunity among the communications and social media community in the Toronto area. [Update: I resigned from the search committee shortly after posting this after it was suggested that I should seek the position myself – which I did. I start October 6th. :)]

Thanks!
