Bachelor of Technology in Graphic Communications Management Ryerson University



What will I learn?

Graphic communication surrounds us - it peppers the pages of magazines, brings brochures to life and makes cereal boxes look snappy. Ryerson graduates in this innovative field are professional managers who have business savvy, an eye for design and an understanding of graphic technology. Whether working at a neighbourhood printing firm or a multinational media company, these professionals know how to turn bright ideas into creative concepts that inform, engage and inspire. These decision-makers use their extensive expertise to facilitate consumer product packaging, secure packaging, security printing, document management and other print- and cross-media products and services. This program selects students on the basis of academic achievement/grades only. Additional non-academic requirements are not required for admission consideration.
