Communication Studies Communications Studies explores the ways in which communication constructs and reflects society and culture. The program emphasizes three interrelated areas of communication: 1) Media and Popular Culture: the theory, criticism and history of communication through traditional media, new media, and popular culture; 2) Rhetorical Communication: the theory, critique and production of informative, persuasive and professional discourse in public and organizational contexts; and 3) Science and Communication: discourses and processes of communication in relation to health, science and technology. The program aims to educate flexible and articulate analysts, researchers and practitioners for a wide range of academic, public and professional contexts. It provides graduates with the knowledge, skill and discernment to communicate ideas effectively and to investigate communication in and across a variety of media including speech, writing, television, film, radio, digital media and interactive entertainment, the Internet, and wireless networks. Our co-operative education and experiential learning opportunities enable students to develop and apply their skills in non-academic contexts. Film Studies Film Studies will help prepare students for careers in the areas of film, video and new media in addition to further graduate study. While not specifically a professional program, these degrees allow students to develop an interdisciplinary appreciation of cinema as a popular medium of communications. In addition to developing a critical understanding of cinema, students will consider film as an art form, as a cultural industry, and as an innovative and developing technology with cultural, social and political significance. Students registered in the Film Studies Major program have the option of pursuing a Bachelor of Arts program in film or a Bachelor of Film Studies degree (BFS) offered in conjunction with SAIT Polytechnic. The BA program is intended to provide an awareness of the cultural, historical and social character of film.

Our field courses are the most exciting and intensive learning activities offered by the Department of Geoscience. They are unique experiences that provide students with the opportunity to do real Geoscience, work with real scientific data, and learn about natural environments. Teamwork is strongly encouraged, so you can expect to forge bonds with your fellow students that will last throughout your entire university experience and beyond. The geology field courses provide opportunities to study rocks and geologic structures where they are best exposed and most easily interpreted. Field exercises include orienteering, mapping surficial deposits, measuring sections in sedimentary rocks, and mapping geologic structures in sedimentary and/or igneous & metamorphic rocks. The hydrogeology and geophysics field courses provide opportunities to collect field data using geotechnical and geophysical equipment, then analyze and interpret the data using mathematical and computational methods. Each field course runs for 12 – 16 days off-campus, in either the late summer before classes begin (August – September) or early spring after classes end (April – May). Most field sites are located beside or near roads, but some are only accessible by hiking in, often through very rugged terrain. You must be in reasonable physical condition, fully mobile, confident on slopes and in high places, and mentally prepared for working long days outdoors in a variety of environmental conditions, including hot sun, rain or snow, in places like the Canadian Shield, Alberta prairies, Rocky Mountains and deserts of southwest USA.

The Schulich School of Engineering's seven Bachelor of Science degree programs are fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. Accreditation means that graduates will be accepted as engineers-in-training in all 10 Canadian provinces and internationally (including the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong, and more).The Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering requires the completion of 22 full course equivalents (132 credits) and normally four years of full-time study. Choosing an internship will add an additional year to your degree plan. Your Faculty and Major Since all students in the Schulich School of Engineering take the same first-year common program, you will have your first year to decide on a program (major). During that year you will be given the opportunity to explore what the different programs offer before you rank your preferences in April. The following programs are offered in the Schulich School of Engineering: Chemical Engineering Civil Engineering Electrical Engineering Geomatics Engineering Mechanical Engineering Oil & Gas Engineering Software Engineering In addition to major programs, you can apply for competitive admission into a specialization in either Biomedical Engineering or Energy and Environment in combination with most programs. Some of the majors programs also offer minors which begin in either second, third or fourth year (depending on the program). The Schulich School encourages well-rounded graduates; therefore all of its programs offer minors and joint degrees with all other faculties at the university. For instance, a Minor in Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development (MEED) is offered in collaboration with the Haskayne School of Business. Choosing your major program In your first year of engineering, you will be entered into a common program that all first-year engineering students are required to take. You will select a program (major) during your first-year in engineering. Information about the selection process will be emailed to you during the academic year. Program selection is competitive, with the most popular programs changing from year to year. In order to be in the best position for being admitted into your top program choice, you should aim to have the 10 first year technical courses successfully completed (with a minimum C- grade) by the end of your first winter semester. All students who have completed first year and are in good academic standing are guaranteed a place in a program but all are not guaranteed a place in their first choice of program. If more students choose a particular program than there are spaces available, the decisions are made on the basis of academic performance and GPA. Program placement categories are based on the number of successfully completed first year engineering courses. Priority for program placement is determined in May of each year. Transfer applicants may be considered for admission directly to a degree program (e.g. Civil, Mechanical, Electrical, etc.) in second year if they are awarded transfer credit for at least eight first year technical Schulich School of Engineering courses or equivalent transfer credits completed. If you believe you are eligible for program placement, you can make your program choices through the internal Engineering Program Sign-Up system in April 2015. Information about this process is sent by email in March 2015. This sign-up overrides your initial online application program choice(s). [-]
